The Rhythm of Life is a large narrative etching. Set in a European city square, this exuberant image sees a plethora of musicians and singers take their sounds to the streets. As a cacophony of song and sound permeates the scene, people embrace the rhythm of life. There is dancing and singing, love and romance, fun and games, babies, children and grannies, nuns and a bishop - and no party would be complete without the Village People nor the alternative Village people, as seen in a group of Morris Dancers. This is one large party, and you the viewer are invited along.
