Masaai Dancers at Sunset

The Maasai are talented rhythmic dancers and are known for their uncanny ability to jump very high. The world record holder in the Maasai Olympics jumped from standing to touch a length of string positioned with his head and astounding 8 feet 4 inches off the ground.

Maasai jumping is performed to rhythmic chanting and encouragement from the tripe with sweeping head movements which spin the men’s long braided hair in a circle above their heads. This painting is the perfect depiction of this engaging and hypnotic dance. Against the setting Tanzanian sky, these two Maasai men are locked in an eternal dance which brings to your home the rhythmic heartbeat of Africa.
