Random Art stuff from Bamako

This is art inspired by “Le Force Noire” or “le Tirailleurs ” who were instrumental troops in aiding the French in their military initiatives in the early to mid 20th century. There was a group of these soldiers called the “SenegaleseTirailleurs”, who were particularly lauded for their, bravery, intellect and skill as soldiers…Wikipedia has a long, yet incomplete (and perhaps even biased) entry on the the Senegalese Tirailleurs , check it out for a primer, but I will post some more info about these soldiers that were instrumental in saving France more losses.

Obviously my favorites are the ones that use poetry or other stylized text to compliment the power of the image…
