An African’s depiction of Baba Nanak?

Sometime last year, I was visiting the local museum in Nairobi where I came across some paintings by a Kenyan African artist. I was particularly drawn to one which looked different from the all the rest around it. This painting had the subject in a white turban and marked with a pearl white beard. The meditative mood and candle just gave me the impression that it could have inspired the artist to depict Guru Nanak. Though it had no caption, I thought it would be nice to click some pictures of it for study. It was a good piece of work. Take a look.
