Tomehuenyi and Agouda


Tomehuenyi and Agouda

Already I see the faces of all those who ask me to detail this or that point,

to condemn this or that behaviour.

The multi-storey house depicted on this wall hanging is the symbol of success.

A very large number of descendents is also considered as a social token of gratitude.

At the extremes of these cultivated and wealthy social strata miserable populations are the victim of the dominating systems,

first under slavery then colonialism which burden them with taxes and chores.

Here the anonymous heads perched in the tree or rolling on the floor represents them.

The cultural and genetic mixing is the fundamental component of this coastal people trapped between

the “White Ocean” and the “Black continent”, hence the trend of Western-style clothes and fashion accessories

in the European or American way.
