Drawn - A anonymous Swazi child

Sipho (pictured standing below) walked into the clinic office where I was working a few weeks back and told me he had something to show me. He took me down to the first floor where two carbon pencil sketches had recently been hanged. The girl looked familiar, and he confirmed that I had taken the original photos (also attached below) on my way back from St Phillips. The girl (of about 4 years old) was carrying a bucket of water down a long dirt road in rural Swaziland, and this made an impression on me. Sipho, the artist, was similarly taken by the child, and drew her. A very nice job, Sipho.
