Under a midnight-blue sky, an African man holds a rock from the ancient stone village of Great Zimbabwe; he quite literally touches his nation's past, as ghost-like historical figures look down on him from the surrounding stone structures. Little is known about Baylis, who designed at least four posters relating to tourism in Rhodesia.
