The Curse of Ham is an interpretation of a biblical story that was used over time to justify the denigration and subjection of darker skinned people.

In this modern visual take, we have the rendition of the warrior as a symbol of virility and simplicity; and the zebra as a symbol of savagery and exoticism. Those figurative elements are purposefully juxtaposed on an abstracted field.
