Art Description

Painting: Oil

Dreams and Promises utilizes an image of a Maasai moran wearing a enkuraru head dress used in the eunuto ceremony when a warrior who has not yet killed a lion pass from senior warrior to junior elder status. The headdress also is in an almond shape that symbolizes the feminine in the universe and a rebirth. Therefore the dream element, a dream of a brighter future... the floating suggested figures also suggest a dream state, each of which has their own symbolism for me but are open to interpretation by anyone. The man in the background I see as a salesman, a dream seller, making promises he cannot always keep. There is an analogy to big business and also agents for artists. In many ways this piece is also a political analogy.
