Apostles of Hard Work
Work has great dignity among Mourides, so much so that Bamba’s
first disciple, Sheikh Ibra Fall, is known as "the apostle of
hard work." His followers, known as Baye Falls, with their distinctive
patchwork clothing ensembles and dreadlocks, are the subject of several
artists’ work in this section—their pieces invoking the Baye Falls’
continuing dedication to the notion of labor as love.
