Niger

expand Artist: Otenia Chantal
collapse interpretation

The bears are supposed to be a picture book telling us what lives through or in the desert.


The largest part of Niger belongs to the Sahara, Ténér- and Sahel deserts. Only 2-3 % of the country can be used for farming. In the humid lowlands along the Niger rice is grown. Since the old days salt from the desert has been traded in for food from the South.


The so-called "blue men", the Tuareg, the nomads from the Sahara are veiled, not the Tuareg women. The turban and the face veil, the famous blue festive dress, are an integral part of their menswear.


The noble Tuareg are bejewelled with the big silver cross of Agadez.


There is no better place than the desert to observe the stars.
