“Patience puts a crown on the head.”

African Proverb

The glasses in Camo 21 were hand beaded by local Maasai. Kenyan women often wear the signature Maasai jewellery despite not being Maasai, since the particular tribal jewellery is perceived as very beautiful with its intricate craftsmanship. On either side the frames are adorned with padlocks- the tiny kind that the artist and her classmates would use to lock their desks in primary school. This was done to keep every student's books safe, and remind the Artist of her school going days.
