A colorful contemporary painting of villagers in Africa going about their daily activities, 15" by 18 1/2" in hand painted colorful frame, unsigned. On the reverse in an English-influenced style of handwriting is written: "Village Life/Two women are carrying buckets of water and the other is sweeping while the other is pounding. Boys are herding cattle and the mother is bathing the baby while men are drinking beer. Two women are carrying bundles of firewood". This charming inscription, which indicates some similarities between cultures, leads me to believe that the origin of this piece would be an English-speaking west, east or south African nation, perhaps Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, etc., or South Africa. A highly decorative work for your wall in the popular primitive style. The work is not Haitian, though to some it might resemble that style; not the shaped roofs of the huts, which would not be of a style found in Haiti.
