The magnificent artistic Nairobi National Museum gate is making a comeback! See the original gate on an announcement (below) sent out by the museum last year in preparation for the reconstruction of the gate. The exceptionally skilled mosaic artist Beatrice Ndumi has been recalled and recommissioned to recreate the mosaic art on the gate. The demolition of the original gate by the Ministry of Roads caused public outcry when it was put down to pave way for the Thika Super Highway. The highway has since been completed, the museum compensated and the gate is coming up gracefully!
