About "Samburu Bride"
Every young girl dreams of her wedding day and a new life with her prince charming. But in the expression on her face, I miss a feeling of the bliss waiting her. Why the down cast eyes? Why the almost sad look on her face? Why the absence of a feeling of joy? Is it because it was an arranged marriage which left her with no choice of her own? Is she apprehensive of what is going to happen when she will be leaving her father's home with only a few belongings in a leather bag on her back walking for at least two days to the village of her future mother-in-law where she will move in with them and there find a new home. As I got to know her I prayed and hoped that she found real love and happiness.
"Ansa Lyon Nel, the artist, has always been fascinated by the colourful traditional peoples of Africa as well as its magnificent natural life."
