This is a drawing I made in St. Thomas, USVI, of three Mocko Jumbies. Mocko Jumbies are stilt walkers who originated in Africa and came over to the Caribbean with the African people. They are considered to be reaching a spiritual space through elevation. Because of their great height they could see evil coming from far away. They became the protectors of their villages, and in particular, of young children. Please find out how to give a donation for the people of Haiti through CARE by going to the onedrawingaday website for those in need so that they may build a better future and protect themselves and their children in the weeks, months and years to come.
