In this vibrant expressionist painting by Ghanaian artist K. Baka, two lovers dance together to the beat of a drum. Says the artist about his work, this painting depicts "...two lovely people who are truly in love and can read each other’s mind because they are connected in soul and body, which no barrier can penetrate. Each dances with their partner through life. It's not just a physical dance, but a dance from the heart."
