Lemos, a Mozambican artist, met Albie Sachs after he moved to Mozambique in 1977, as he was banned from South Africa due to anti-apartheid activism. Sachs befriended many politically conscious artists there while he worked as a law professor and for the resistance movement abroad. Lemos later gifted this work to his "great friend Albie".
