The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, WW1 Featured 5 Aug 2015 Image

The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, WW1

The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, originally published in the 1914 Christmas number of The Graphic. Depicting a dead soldier on a battlefield with an ethereal image of Christ on the cross shining down on him, it was one of the most popular images of the war. Stephen Paget observed in The Cornhill Magazine that this Graphic cover has turned railway bookstalls into wayside shrines; the one and only picture of the war, up to now, which says what most needs to be said on canvas. Date: 1914

Senegal - Griot playing a Kora

Senegal - seated Griot playing a Kora, a 21-stringed harp lute that originated in the Gambia River valley with the Mandinko but is one of the most popular instruments in Senegal. Griots from most Mande groups in Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau play the kora, which has featured on a number of western recordings in recent years. A Griot is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition, and is also often seen as something of a societal leader due to his traditional position as an adviser to royal personages. Date: circa 1910s
