World Cup '74 Portrait #228 (Kidumu Mantentu: Zaire)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

This most recent addition to the drawing project represents Kidumu Mantantu, who was featured in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 sticker albums (in the former, from which we took our original source material in this particular instance & which on a number of occasions adopts idiosyncratic naming protocols, erroneously as ‘Mantentu’, & the latter as one of the very select six representing minnows & debutants Zaire in the latter publication), & selected as captain of his nation’s official squad for the Finals, where he went on to appear & lead the team in each of their three matches, being substituted in two.
