Remembering Gedung Kuning

To commemorate 'The Mango Tree' book launch, Jeffrey Wandly of Maya Gallery painted 3 paintings of Gedung Kuning. 

According to Jeffrey, the branches and mango leaves above the window show "a sense of purity enveloping the nostalgic window of Gedung Kuning (GK) facade; window of GK history & heritage."
