EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite wooden sculpture from the first half of the 20th century in Kamba, Kenya. The figure depicts an Askari, proudly donning a fez adorned with a striking metal cap badge. Crafted by the talented artist Munge Mutisya, this piece stands at a height of 24.5cm and is now part of a private collection under the care of Michael Graham-Stewart. The intricate details on this carved artwork are truly remarkable. From the carefully sculpted belt buckle to the lifelike representation of a standing male in uniform, every element speaks volumes about the rich history and cultural significance behind it. This artefact serves as a powerful reminder of Kenya's colonial past and its connection to tribal art. The Askari figure symbolizes strength and bravery as it holds onto its gun, representing its role within the armed forces or troops during that era. It encapsulates both historical context and artistic mastery in one stunning piece. As we admire this photograph, let us appreciate not only its aesthetic beauty but also acknowledge its deeper meaning - paying homage to African craftsmanship while shedding light on significant chapters in our shared history.
