007 "Footsteps of peace" framed print for UGANDA
Although the civil war has ended, the issue of socially re-integrating former child soldiers still remains unresolved.
For this very reason, the children continue the legacy of their traditional tribal dances infused with prayers for peace.
"Footsteps of peace" is an artistic representation of the folk dance music that is passed down in the Acholi tribe, who graciously shared their rakugaki art drawings and paintings. Percussion instruments, singing and the sound of feet as they stomp on the ground are embodied in the artwork design.Listen to the song on YouTube here.
The artwork is a collage of the painted footprints captured from local folk dances by children in the city of Gulu, many of whom had became child-soldiers as a result of the Ugandan civil unrest, together with pictures drawn by Unissograff artist ca37.
This beautiful digital framed print is hand prepared to order by craftsmen in London, UK (please expect up to one week for delivery).*¹
Unissograff is art that would be incomplete without children.
20% of the net proceeds generated from each purchase is donated towards the support activities of the African office of Certified NPO Terra Renaissance, who jointly managed the Rakugaki Art workshops with Unisograff artist ca37 in Uganda.
