Evelyn Omeenyo The Three Camp Fire 2016
Acrylic on canvas
980 x 1340mm

The three camp fire is about a group of tribes camping out on their traditional country and one of their children gets taken away by an "Ahwu" - Ghost. The mother of the child cried and cried for days in language wanting her child back. All the men and women got worried too then all the men from the tribe went out walking all over Country. As they were walking they sang traditional songs for their ancestors to guide them and show them the way. After many days of walking, the men came across the "Ahwu's" - ghosts tracks. The men found the ahwu and speared him and they took the child back to the camp.
