This is another print that I drew and cut while in DR Congo in early 2014. After traveling by bicycle through remote rural regions with a conservation theater project, I was keenly aware of the changes that had happened in that landscape, after hours of conversation with people in various villages. Criminal commercial enterprises have combined with corrupt elements of the national army to empty the land of animals, and village chiefs mourned the absence of elephants, the absence of almost all large mammals, and described how the landscape was changing in their absence. Sons and daughters looked on with somber expressions. Those absences were palpable in the forests and in the savannahs we rode through.
This is a tribute to the people of that landscape, their skills and crafts, and to the changes in which they are caught.
