Wrestling is one of the common games in African societies. This game determines a man's strength and the best wrestlers normally command a lot of respect from the society.
Moreover, in some societies to be allowed to marry a bride from any family, one is tested to wrestle his brother in law. So, this makes it a very important game in most African societies.
I did come up with an abstract form in this artwork, emphasizing the feet of the wrestlers because for one to win a wrestling bout, the best skill rewards how one tightens his foot grip on the ground.
