EDITORS COMMENTS
**"Hunting Ostriches on the Plains of Somalia: A Glimpse into Colonialism's Darker Side** In this striking engraving, Commander Dundas is depicted in a bold pose, rifle at the ready as he takes aim at unsuspecting ostriches roaming freely across the plains near Jubba River, Somalia. The image captures a moment from late 19th century colonial history when European powers sought to assert their dominance over Africa. The scene raises questions about the ethics of hunting and its relationship with colonialism. Was this act of violence merely an expression of power or was it also driven by necessity? Did Commander Dundas see these birds as mere prey, devoid of life and dignity? This engraving serves as a poignant reminder that even in the most seemingly idyllic settings, the darker aspects of human nature can prevail. It invites us to reflect on our own attitudes towards wildlife conservation, colonialism's legacy, and the complex interplay between power dynamics and violence. **Credit:** Commander Dundas shooting ostriches on the plains, Jubba River, Somalia (engraving) by English School (19th century); Private Collection; Bridgeman Images from Fine Art Finder.
