Work analysis: Idanre is a town in Ondo State, south western Nigeria.
The hill of Idanre is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Nigeria. It includes such cultural sites as “Owa’s Palace, Shrines, Old Court, Belfry, Agbooogun footprint, thunder water (Omi Apaara) and burial mounds and grounds”. It resides 3000 ft above sea level and houses a unique ecosystem upon which the cultural landscape has integrated. On getting to the entrance of the hill you will see a great tree at the entrance of the ancient city of Idanre called the IRAYE TREE, then you can now get prepared to take the steps to the great city beyond the hills of Idanre. This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on October 8, 2007 in the Cultural category.
This landscape painting of Idanre showcases the green and hilly beauty of the town. Green in the painting represents the grass and trees while the yellow and deeply brown indicates the rooftops of houses in the town. Hanging a painting like this, gives one a warm feeling of tourism.
