Figure 8

The image (at left), which appears on the back of the 50,000- and 100,000-metical notes, depicts part of a mural (at right) on the ground-floor façade of the headquarters of the Bank of Mozambique. The ceramic mural is the work of Querubim Lapa and an inscription on the mural reads: ‘Querubim, 1963, Lisboa’.
