What Next ?

This artwork is characterized by "informed realism." These are "Marabou stock" birds, nicknamed in our local language "Karou"! These birds are found near abattoir and slaughter houses where they get fresh meat to feed on. The bird has a gullet where it stores its prey and later digests it. They are very big birds with long legs. They are primarily white and grey with a little black coloring. When it rains, the Karou just stands in one place on a tree and I have seen them after the rain has fallen and they look miserable. All the pieces of meat and bones have been eroded and there was nothing to feed on. The artist is a brother to David Basasira. He is in high school studying economics, history and art.
