Footnotes

  • "These are real examples of Senegal women - stately, aristocratic, slender and tall. They walk as though they have no concern at all with their surrounding, yet going on their way to somewhere. This is already being felt from youth. The little girls have by nature that way of being relaxed in the gestures of their limbs, so graceful without even being aware of it." (the artist, as quoted in Lindop, 1988)
