Senegals Amazone Warrior Women by YZ1

Back in the 1890s when the First Franco-Dahomean War raged through West Africa, highly trained military women chopped off the heads of the French. Sometimes while they slept. French Street Artist YZ payed tribute to these fierce female fighters known as Amazone. The images of these Women are spread across a few cities on the west coast of Senegal, south of Dakar.
