Daily Drawing Challenge 15 - Rastafarian
Do you think all Rastafarians do is have dreads and smoke weed? This is what I thought until today, this prompt really made me read up on them and I found out some interesting stuff.
A Rastafarian is someone who believes in the Rastafari movement, it was developed in Jamaica in 1930 by scholars of religion, this movement is both religious and social and they believe in a single God called Jah who they think lives in everyone.
Well, from my reading, they have dreads and smoke weed 😂😂I wasn't wrong lol, but their dreads isn't just for style or fashion, they believe their strength lies in their dreadlocks just like Samson in the Bible. They also don't see marijuana as a drug, they smoke it because according to them, it increases spiritual awareness and opens up their mind, wow.
Again, Bob Marley didn't start the movement, his music was the biggest tool to spread the message and that made it popular.
