Stairway to the Gods of Africa.

This painting was inspired by a recent visit to South Africa and the Magaliesberg mountains.

The smell of a hot sun on the red dusty earth and the surrounding bushes hangs heavily in the air.

Not a breath of wind stirs during the ascent to the old Boer war fortress on the ridge. The route is paved with rocks that have been carved by a long forgotten river.

Here you can connect with ancient Africa and its power. These unique places are often overlooked in the massive change that has overtaken this continent.

The old gods are eternally a part of this landscape and can still be glimpsed if you remain quiet.
