"Massai Warrior (Tanzania/Kenya)", 2020
Artist: John Peaspanen
About the Artwork: The Massai herd their Zebu cattle and subsist mainly on the meat, milk and blood from the animals. The men wield huge spears to defend their livestock and to hunt lions.
“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
