Thirteen panels, above, tell the history-in gospel narrative-of Sikri, a remote community in western Kenya. The panels, modelled on a 15th-century Spanish altarpiece, took local women seven months to complete and form an altarpiece in Sikri’s Anglican Church of the Resurrection. Until mid-October, the altarpiece was on display in Stellenbosch, South Africa, as part of an exhibition of African art.
