Prophetess Anna Mantsopa Makhetha was born in 1795 at a place called Likotsi or Ramakhetheng near present day Maseru. She is the daughter of Nkopane, elder brother of Makhetha, and Sesilane. The name she was given at birth is Koena-li-fule, which means “the crocodiles are feeding/ crocodile feed”.  When she was young she witnessed the horrors of famine caused by the Difaqane, which forced many people to turn to cannibalism and sadly this is how she lost her father.

Oliewenhuis Art Museum is giving honour to the life and work of an incredible artist,Karin Jaroszynska (1934-2014). Oliewenhuis holds 20 artworks of Jaroszynska in its permanent collection.Most of the works, including the Helsinki-series,were part of a generous donation by the art collector and philanthropist FernandF. Haenggi to Oliewenhuis in 2006; the remainder were purchased by Oliewenhuis. Her work- surrealist, playful and somewhat mysterious- shows Jaroszynska’s extraordinary talent and artistic integrity.
