16 Nene George Liberation I Gouche on paper 1984Liberation 1 by George Nene

The artwork Liberation is subdivided into two main parts; the bottom part depicting the struggle against colonial rule and the upper part portraying freedom as people can

be seen with baskets full of freshly harvested crops and cattle behind them.

This week marks Zimbabwe's celebration of 37 years of Independence. This day, on one hand demonstrates the significance of freedom,

and reminds us of the sacrifices of our ancestors, and on the other hand it unites the whole Zimbabwean nation under one flag. It is also a  symbol which unites our past, present and gives us a guide to our future.

Happy Independence
