Cudjoe, Lionheart. Pastel and charcoal on paper. 28x22cm. Private collection. Exhibited, alongside White Lady’s Honey with Rising Tide, in the Annual National Exhibition 2000. Eyes ablaze Cudjoe, rebel leader among slaves. The composition, reminiscent of scaffolding, depicts muscular strengths and ruggedness, but also conjures up the image of the Trojan horse which hides an army in its belly.
