Lin Daud #Stateless
There are only a few communities that can have deeper connection to the ocean than the sea gypsies. Owing that they have a nomadic and seafaring way of lifestyle and rarely set foot on land. They often reported to have “landsick” if they spend a day or two on land. Today, a fairly large population still living in wooden houseboats. These masters of sea are roaming around the Coral Triangle between Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia. In this painting from our art shop online, the artist Lin Daud painted a young boy rowing on the boat nearby his stilt house.
The background setting of this drawing in nearby the Semporna Island in Sabah, Malaysia. Sea gypsies are incredible free divers and they earn their living solely based on resources from the sea. Besides their excellent fishing and diving, they are good at constructing pile houses and boats as featured in the painting. Their boats also known as Lepa and often being displayed in the famous Regatta Lepa festival.
Unfortunately, due to their nomadic lifestyles most of them are not offered citizenship status by any country. Therefore, they are only be able to reside in the waters of Sulu and Celebe Sea and not on the land. They are “stateless” people. Due to that reason, most of their children do not have a chance to attend to school. Education is power, for the young generation to change their future. The artist hopes to convey a message through this art shop online that this country should make an effort in granting them a citizenship and access to education.
