Music is the voice of the soul

Painting is the mirror of the soul

Drama is the enactment of the soul

Kongi, oil 8x10 (Piehl collection)

Kongi is a ten year old girl from the Hamar tribe in Ethiopia. The Hamar are one of the oldest cultures on earth. They live in the southwest corner of Ethiopia where Lucy, the oldest humanoid, was found. Today, however, the Hamar are on the verge of extinction because climate change has brought drought to their homeland. The ways of their ancestors are no longer enough to keep them alive.

This painting was done to raise money for an organization called Global Team for Local Initiatives (GTLI) which is working with the Hamar to help them adapt to the changing world while keeping their ancient culture intact.
