Wansan Village Noir

In the Fouta-Djallon region of Guinea, Zainab stays in picturesque Wansan, a Fulani family village where daily life is quite different from the hustle and bustle of the city....

Regular price $200.00
  • THE STORY

    Cow grazing the pastures.

    Goats and sheep roaming free.

    Chickens scurrying around the village huts.

    This is the essence of life that Zainab felt the first time she walked into a family village in Wansan.

    Simple. Minimal. Carefree.

    The conversation of Fulani life is in full view with everyday household objects lying around both inside and outside the home: the kettle for handwashing, the calabash gourd that stores food and liquids, the mortar and pestle for food preparation, and the coal pot for cooking.

  • THE PROCESS
    The completed watercolor painting of Wansan Village. I wanted to incorporate all the iconic objects of the Fulani household and the symbiotic relationship between the Fulani and their livestock.
    Filling in the details of the Wansan Village print with watercolor.
