Les trois âges de la Côte d'Ivoire

Documentary heritage submitted for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 2012.

The work is sponsored by the State to Christian Lattier one of the greatest visual artists of the modern Côte d'Ivoire. It shows three figures arranged from left to right who appear increasingly large. The idea of the artist is to link the figure of the first age to that of the third age, the age of colonization, passing by the second age, that of Independence. Thus, his country and continent would thrive socially, culturally, economically and politically. This is an optimistic view of Africa which appears in a dynamic of progress.
