Fulani girl - Nigeria

Oil on canvas

 Traditionally, People of the Fulani tribes of Africa have been cattle herders, through the centuries many settled down and turned to politics, successfully establishing a series of kingdoms between Senegal and Cameroon by the 19th century, and conquering the Hausa by about 1810. The Fulani held much of northern Nigeria in subjection until defeated (1900-1906) by the British. The religious beliefs of a large percentage of the cattle-herding Fulani are animalistic, although many of the politically oriented Fulani are Muslim.

Using a photograph by someone else as inspiration is alright, but it's usually good form to say as much!

I would be very happy to as I have in my other paintings and drawings on both da and my website but I can find no link to any original photographer despite looking very hard. if you know who the originator is please tell me so I can credit them appropriately.
