Artist's Description

Linoprint. I remember Zebedia standing proudly in front of his mud home with cowskin over the doorway, leaning on the stick he used to herd the family’s cattle and goats. He was 12 years old but already shouldering the responsibility of a young man of his tribe in Tanzania. The eldest son is important to the family. Zebedia was bright: he would have done well at school if he’d had the opportunity to go. But as the eldest son, his job was to help his father herd their cattle. When poverty is history all sons, and daughters, will get an education
