About "Massai Lion Hunter"

I have always loved the colourful people of Kenya, the Massai being one of the main cultures. In this painting I depict a traditional rite of passage. When every young boy comes of age they have to go on a lion hunt to prove themselves to be a man. They adorn themselves with a "mane" made of leather and osrtich feathers. If they are able to kill a lion and survive they have earned the right to call themshelves a man. I'm not sure if they still practice the actual act of killing a lion in this ritual in the 21st century. But it is beautifull none the less.
