Donso: le chasseur

11x14 graphite on bristol.

Donsoya is the art and knowledge of the hunt, and the Donso are initiated hunters who play an important role in Mande society. The hunter in this drawing came to honor the chief of the village in a grand fête that lasted all day, with much music and dancing. This man’s powerful rifle was constructed by hand in the village by a local blacksmith, and he fired off several shots to honor the village’s chief, who had recently passed away.
