“Langeraat is raadop (fed-up)”

Art portfolio- my work
Langeraat is raadop/ Langeraat is fed-up (embroidery on rubber)

Langeraat is raadop/ Langeraat is fed-up (embroidery on rubber)

The word Langeraat in the title refers to the childhood rhyme: “duimpie, duimpie-se-maat, langeraat, fielafooi en piepie-in-die-kooi”, where one teach a little kid about the fingers on his hand.  I’m not sure how to translate it, but it literally means:  (thumb, thumb’s friend, middle-finger, ring-finger and little-finger)

On the middle finger is a rhino finger-puppet….

I made this work in response to the rhino poaching that still continues no matter what people are trying to do about it….

Yes Langeraat is fed-up with the situation…
