Shemwindo's Wife 1

Medium: kilncast glass

9" x 5" x 11"


McAlister Merchant

In the the Clyde W Ford book, Hero With An African Face, the chief, Shemwindo, had seven wives whom he charged to never bear him a son. One wife, of course did.

This figure is the third sculpture in my series of depictions of characters from these African legends. the others are 1) the hero, Mwindo, and 2) his despot father, Shemwindo.
