Reminder of the sub-human manner in which indigenous Africans were treated in the colon's endless thirst for wealth; how many current day Belgians (or other colons) know the full sacrifice incurred? the full level of looting?
Hard to see details of the work on my small screen, but it seems his head/face are there.
Would have been quite fitting for this man to have 'lost his head'.
