"Harrar, nostalgic dreamland", oil, 2004

"Harrar, nostalgic dreamland", oil, 2004.  

This painting  was commissioned by an Ethiopian lady, dedicated to her  son on an important occasion. It now belongs to this family's collection.

The girls on the painting are a symbol of the beauty, dynamism and generosity of the People of Harrar. There is a transcendent luminosity in the main figure, synthesis of magnitude.
