"Ready to Wed"


oil on linen

Maasai woman - Amboseli National Park, Kenya


Ready to Wed

  • I was unaware that the Maasai wore their heavy beading every day but later found out they do. This young woman was likely ready to marry or recently wed based on her beading. This lovely Maasai woman was found walking with her brother and two donkeys on Amboseli National Park, Kenya. 

    The Maasai are nomadic people moving with the rains to care for thei cattle. They are very tradition people with many ceremonies marking different stages of life. They are also known for the high jumping ritauls and elaborate beadwork which is part of their daily life and ceremonies.

    The original framed oil painting is AVAILABLE!

    Please inquire if you are interested in print options.
