Fulani girl - Nigeria by Lianne-Issa Fulani girl - Nigeria by Lianne-Issa

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!
