“Tselot” is a symbolist oil painting by the Ethiopian painter Sisay Teshome, who completed this painting after the war in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Radically different from previous treatments of the subject, it shows a lone female figure looking up at the sky, surrounded by white birds that symbolize hope. Sisay intentionally used symbolism not traditionally associated with hope to make the painting’s meaning ambiguous.
