Third World, 1976
The Third World covers produced over a period of 4 years are in the style of Haitian art; they tell a story. The first, a woman on a donkey. The second, a man making pottery. The third the man, woman and children come together in the single sleeve, 'Now that we found Love' . In the fourth the family leave Babylon on a journey to Zion-the promised land. The fifth, 'The Story has been told', the family arrive on the other shore to be greeted by Third World playing. The children, like the children of Israel cross over into the promised land, but the parents like Moses, can not. The donkey has become a magical figure, the spirit guide, disguised in the first picture as a beast of burden.
