In this piece, the rhythm and strong ties of responsibility in Ghanaian family life is captured perfectly with Murnazi's intimate portrayal of love, innocence, and duty. This sensitive portrait captures an older brother carrying his younger sister, complementing his strong grasp with an always watchful eye. The younger child, safely nestled in the reliable arms of her elder brother, is curiously intent on the viewer, while the protective older sibling intently watches her with a complex expression …perhaps remembering his own carefree days of being carried on his mother’s hip.
