AZAFRÁN (SAFFRON)



AFRICAN ALBINO REBORN BABY "AZAFRÁN" from Lanny sculpted by Olga Auer

Ltd Ed COA 82/1000


Azafrán is an african albino baby girl belonging to my art dolls serie “Embracing the difference”

.

Now that the world raise its voice against racism and police brutality, I cannot forget that underneath that noise the same problems continue to persist  I do not forget África. Never forget Africa and I am specially sensitive to the misfortune that hit africans albino.

The challenges for people born with albinism in some countries of Africa are unimaginable.  There is an African superstition that albino people are not truly human,  many believe that they are demons or ghosts, that albinos are inmortal and their bodies contain magic healing properties. Local superstitions and traditions provoke attacks on people with albinism, whose limbs and body parts are sold for witchcraft practices with the belief that brings luck and sucess. All these made that clients are willing to pay high prices for albino body parts. Albino are so valuable, that even exhume buried bodies whenever an albino dies. Bounty hunters kill, mutilate and selling albino body parts to make rich, without remorse.

It is difficult to imagine how anyone could be so cruel to a child. Hundreds ofafrican albino children have suffered mutilations and are waiting for prosthetics donated from overseas charity organizations. The destiny of  african albino children  is condenated to discrimination, segregation, poverty, persecution, kidnapped, raped, AIDS, mutilation for profit and even death.  Life as albino in Africa is terrifying, desolate.





































Please keep in mind that my art dolls are not toys. AZAFRÁN is not suitable for childrens and has to be handle with care.
