Narrative: My first exposure to modern-day cultures in the African continent was through a photography book called The African Ark. I was blown away by the diversity of traditions, fashion, and artistic expression within a small region known as the Horn of Africa (the spot highlighted in yellow on the silhouette of Africa in the background), which inspired this piece. In the center is a young lady from Eritrea, decked out in fine jewelry. Her hands cradle silhouettes that represent people from her region.
