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. Here we see, betwixt two flowers, a snail, a hare, a woman with mortar and a man with axe and adze, a tortoise and a chameleon.
