World Cup '74 Portrait #101 (Ntumba Kalala: Zaire)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Our latest subject is Ntumba Kalala, who was featured, in something of a shy pose, amongst the 16-man Zaire selection in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ sticker album (from which original source the drawing was ultimately processed, via a couple of photocopies) & subsequently included in his country’s squad for the tournament, where he made one appearance, in Zaire’s final match of three, a third defeat, 0 – 3 to Brazil.
