About this Item
This work depicts a troop of baboons at sunrise near the 'Sounding River'. The leader magically points fire at a bucket of maize and cooks a meal for his fellows. One of the baboons overindulges and develops a stomach ache.
In the Spirit of our Stories project, 1995, a group of rural artists from the Ardmore Ceramic Studio at Winterton worked in a medium that was new to most of them at the time, printmaking, at the Caversham Press. The artists’ skill in working in a narrative tradition lent itself to the translation of images from 3-dimensional ceramic forms into 2-dimensional prints.
The images the artists produced include interpretations of dreams, references to folklore and bible stories, and observations from the world around them.
