The Guardian

My little brother once asked me: “Is the earth called the mother land because God is referred to as father?” This painting thinks on this question. Different cultures and communities are structured in different ways but the woman’s way in the universe is the same. We owe them everything. This painting, set in my hometown of Kampala, is exactly that embodiment of love beyond words: the woman that takes a step and puts her life on the line for the people she holds dear. She is sincerely the Guardian of the Gates.
