Mucubal Tribeswoman

This is a 10" x 8" watercolor pencil painting of a Mucubal tribeswoman in Angola. She is wearing an ompota – a huge, uniquely beautiful headdress built on a wicker frame and filled with tied oxtails. In photographs, tribeswomen sometimes look as though they are seeing into some far distant place or are in a private reverie.

About Alexandra Spencer

After almost 18 years as media relations officer for the Americas for a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Los Angeles, I've retired and moved to Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Although I'm now a consultant to clients in the infrastructure sector, a whole new world of having time for art has opened up. And, I'm thrilled, thrilled, thrilled!
