Dominic’s home village was in the Loudo area of Southern Sudan, from where he was forced to flee at about six years of age. He moved to Salt Lake and founded the nonprofit Dominic Raimondo Foundation, which works to provide a future for the children now living in the Loudo area through education.
As for the bulls: cattle in South Sudan are a status symbol — the more cattle a person has, the higher the social status. To help teach children how to take care of cattle, they are given clay bull figurines. The foundational knowledge of caring for cattle cannot be passed on otherwise.
Dominic makes his clay bulls in the traditional way. He molds the figures by hand, each with its own personality. When the figures have dried, they are placed in a pile of sawdust, which is lit on fire and covered to trap heat. A bull can take as long as three weeks to complete. Each comes in a unique color, shape, and size, making for a thoughtful and personal gift for any occasion.
