    Literature
    Kamphausen, P. A. 'George Lilanga, Colours of Life', pub. Hamburg 2005, illust pg.54.

    In the 2005 publication the artist recounts of this work:

    "This is a special painting, I have conceived it as a large village scene. The picture was almost ready. You must know now that it was the rainy season in which children sometimes play in the workshop. When raging they knocked over a pot with blue colour. I have thought fast how I can save the beautiful village painting. From this, the lake with the swimmer and the small boats as a new subject arose."
