EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling harbor of Mogadishu, known as Moguedouchou in the late 19th century. The scene is filled with vibrant energy and a unique tradition that may seem peculiar to modern eyes. As travelers enter the harbor, their dung becomes a valuable resource for the sailors who cleverly use it to create a cacophony of sound. In this engraving by Riou, we witness sailors making an enormous racket by banging on various objects, attracting the attention of eager locals who eagerly welcome them with shouts of enthusiasm. It is fascinating how something as ordinary as dung can be transformed into an instrument for celebration and connection. The image serves as an illustration for Georges Revoil's travelogue "Voyage chez les Benadir, les somalis et les Bayoun" recounting his journey through these regions between 1882 and 1883. Published in Le Tour du monde, nouveau journal des voyages edited by Edouard Charton, this engraving transports us to a time when exploration was still shrouded in mystery and discovery. Preserved within private collections today, this historical photograph captures not only a specific moment but also offers insight into cultural practices and maritime customs from long ago. Leonard de Selva's skillful photography ensures that this remarkable piece remains accessible for all to appreciate and learn from.
