  Bronze sculptures - female figures in bronze by South African artist Jean Doyle    


The Mother of Kings

The Baganda people, living in the central region of Uganda, are the largest and most politically powerful ethnic group in the country.

This woman wears a traditional wrapper called basuti. Because Baganda kingship is matrilineal, any powerful woman identifies with the throne because she may give birth to a king. For the Baganda, the king is seen as the master of all men and the husband of all women.
