Until the Lion Tells the Story… is a heartfelt tribute from Coulibaly to the remarkable African scholars who have ignited a fire in him. It is an attempt and desire of the Burkina Faso artist to envision an African Renaissance, a different Africa that is rooted in its own indigenous knowledge, drawing inspiration from its cultural diversity, from ancient Egypt to the Mali Empire. The work is an invitation to embrace the wisdom and knowledge of Africa as an essential part of being in the world, and a reminder that the journey towards renaissance and transformation begins with building one’s inner pyramid.
