What makes this painting truly special is its ability to transport the viewer into the scene. With each glance, one can discover new people and details, adding to the depth and richness of the work. Despite the busy and dynamic setting, Lungu manages to create a sense of peace and calm, making this painting a true masterpiece that captures the essence of Zimbabwe's street life.
