Life stripped to its essence
Illustration inspired by reading "The people in the trees" by Hanya Yanagihara and the experience I had visiting the villages of the tribes in South Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Although the story takes place on the other side of the world this qote from the book meets exactly the feeling I had while visiting the village of the Hamar tribe:
„I found myself admiring the village, even its simplicity. Yes, it was a crude sort of life, but there was a cozy sense of bounty here, of everything having its place, of every need of life-food, shelter, weaponry-being well considered and provided for, of life stripped to its essence and yet comfortably fulfilled.”
