Part of the "Anthills of the Savannah" series based on the novel by Chinua Achebe about an imagined corrupt West African State, this piece addresses our notion of the Sahel as perpetual desert as portrayed in the media. These large pieces are intended as wall hangings and are made of an old truck tarpaulins - and are very rough. Many of the shapes are the result of collage.
