Project Description

Osa Johnson wrote a children’s series with three “Jungle” themed books: Jungle Pets, Jungle Babies, & Jungle Friends.  One chapter in the books is called “Flying Flame” and details her time with her husband Martin while filming flamingo on Lake Turkana.   This brooch was clearly influenced by that trip, which included an aerial safari from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt from 1933-1935
