Artist's description:

Woman at Timkut festival, Lalibela, Ethiopia. Dawn is approaching and with it the excitement of the second day of the festival where the pool in front of her will be blessed by the priests and the holy water then sprinkled on all around by way of rebaptism.

They are celebrating the original baptism of Christ in the River Jordan as they do each year. The traditional white garments of the woman and her fellow worshipers are in sharp contrast to the brilliant colours and shining threads of the clothes of the priests and their umbrellas.

The painting is on a single flat sheet of board
