"The Smoke that Thunders 2", 2016, 100 x 120cm. Translated to Mosi-oa-Tunya, it is the native name for the Victoria Falls located on the Zambezi river on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
In his diary, explorer David Livingstone wrote of the falls: “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” Upon arrival, it’s easy to understand how this massive waterfall became named “The Smoke that Thunders”. The Zambezi river drops over the beautiful terrain with a giant roar as a cloud of spray shoots skyward forming a giant, ever-present rainbow. The spray is actually visible from the town of Livingston, Zambia, 14 kilometers away!
