You may recall how I was oddly inspired by this photo of a priest or diviner's shirt, found in an old design scrapbook and how the song Do They Know Its Christmas was all over the radio at the time. I got to think about amulets and how they were worn on shirts like this - particularly by the West African Bamana tribe- to protect them from harm whilst hunting. Amulets often have text inscribed in them or an extract of a holy text wrapped up inside them.
