It was tipped to be one of the best attractions at Wilson Ngoni’s ‘Wild Brush: The Maun Experience’ exhibition, but the prized painting fell and got soiled.

Instead of mourning the loss of the exquisite piece, the industrious artist worked tirelessly to restore The Water Garment to its former glory. It will be among the 30 works to be showcased at the painter’s exhibition to be held from February 25 to March 15.

“Soon after coming to Maun, I saw some boys swimming in the Thamalakane river. They inspired me to do this painting. Maun is a hot place and when one is in the area, they would wish they could swim to cool off. That’s how I came up with the painting’s tall,” the artist told Arts&Culture.
