The Last Minute Mask Dancer

This picture was taken in a tiny village in southern Burkina Faso. This performer found out on late notice that he would fill in for the regular mask dancer in a local celebration. However, lacking in many of the costume materials, he threw together what he had on hand. I thought this was representative of the 'Cava Aller' national moto, which loosely translates to 'it will work out one way or another'.
