EDITORS COMMENTS
This black and white portrait captures the regal presence of John Boko Cobham, a revered king of Old Calabar in Southern Nigeria. Taken in 1912 by renowned artist Harry Johnston, this photograph is a testament to the rich cultural heritage and diversity found on the African continent. Standing tall against the backdrop of his country, King Cobham exudes an air of authority and wisdom. His majestic stature is complemented by his traditional attire, reflecting his royal status and ethnicity. The sun's rays gently illuminate his face, symbolizing not only the warmth of Africa but also highlighting his significant role as a leader within his community. The image serves as more than just a portrait; it represents an important scientific documentation from "The Living Races of Mankind" series. This collection aimed to explore different races and ethnicities around the world during that era. Through this lens, we gain insight into West African monarchy while appreciating its connection to broader topics such as astronomy and the solar system. As we observe this group portrait with King Cobham at its center, we are transported back in time to witness a moment frozen forever - one that encapsulates centuries-old traditions and customs. It reminds us of the enduring legacy left behind by great leaders like John Boko Cobham who played vital roles in shaping their nations' histories.
