"Kehla" venerable Zulu elder

Pronounced KESH-LA Kehla is a Zulu word of respect for an old man of stature. Wise, calm, and a leader. I used Conté pencil which is a cross between lipstick and charcoal to my mind. It is dramatic and hard to correct if one tries to move one's lines with an eraser. A nice challenge for a sketch artist - you get it right the first time or you just don't get it right!
