Maua Ya Chuma translates to Metal Flowers in Swahili. This painting illustrates the duality the young and esspecially the young of color face in the world today and historically. The self determination necessary to will oneself to be at once hardened and fierce as well as delicate and nurturing and able to receive nurturing. This is an addendum to my lauded "Self Evident Truths" series of paintings.
