The opening piece for a series of pictures and portraits, responding to my own travels in Africa, but also to the research I undertook for my World Hourglass blog, which left me for many months incapable of painting "Beautiful Woman" or "Still-Life With Full Kitchen Table", or any of the other standard subjects of Art in the Great Complacency of the West. This was intended simply to be a cartoon, but somehow it worked out better than that when I got the shape of the ear all wrong, and then realised, of course, that actually I hadn't.
