RITUAL COVERING (1996)

A tribal ritual garment, seen as a protective covering, conveying the vibrancy and energy of the Zulu people in KwaZulu Natal who wear incredible traditional outfits to commemorate rites of passage. I see the skulls adding a sense of mystery and the presence of the ancestors.
