Fortitude

In this painting, I sought to capture the strength and resilience of the Zulu warrior. I chose to depict the warrior holding an Iklwa, a weapon designed by Shaka Zulu himself, to highlight the cultural significance of this powerful symbol. To create a unique texture for the painting, I used an actual palm leaf to create a raised texture effect in the leaves. Against a background of soft, cool gray, the warrior stands tall and proud, embodying the spirit of fortitude that the Zulu people are known for.
