Malawi - Dedza District - Mua Parish

 

The East wall of the church is adorned with a broad wall painting in three distinct bands, which depict Creation as it inhabits air, land and lake (and under the land). Here we see numerous lake fish, together with a newt and a crab, the amphibious frog and (under the land) a snake and a hedgehog.
