TITLE: Rickshaw from Durban
ORIGINAL Painting by Nikolay Sologubov (Sologub)
In Durban (South Africa), you can see a picture, which you will not see anywhere else in Africa.
On the largest streets of Durban you can suddenly see the passengers, lounging on the seats gig pulled by rickshaws. Considering their way up close, you realize that he has no equal in the entire African continent. Durban rickshaws seem masquerade bogeyman. In their appearance combines the features of the old Germanic gods, Chinese coolies from Hong Kong and the old Negro leaders, dressed for the administration of cannibalistic rites.
Bare feet up to the knees smeared with white clay. A whole network of colored beads, belts and straps decorated with shiny studs hanging around his hips. It is also embellished shoulders, chest, back. But hardly anyone will be able to accurately describe everything that the Durban rickshaw wears on his head. The main part of his headdress consists of two mighty ox horns. On the horns themselves, between them, and generally everywhere in the head beams adorn horsehair, colorful feathers, beads, belts, ribbons and shells.
Do you want to know the price? One shilling per mile, regardless of whether the passenger is following the slenderness of his belly or he weighs a whole centner ...
