25.11.08 THE MASQUERADER
Went to the Whelan library again today to photocopy a research paper from the University of South Africa which Father Okere had from a conference he attended, which discussed the nature of African art and philosophy.
The car we went in today had a picture of a masquerader but nobody could tell me who or what it represented. In most of the cars they had some form of Christian symbolism though. This fascinated me and would love to find out what this image represents in the traditional culture.....funny though how nobody wanted to have anything to do with it and were not curious about it.
