Ir-Rabja Ta' Ġaħan

Ir-Rabja ta' Ġaħan - 142x86cm Mixed Media
Acquired for the National Collection of Fine Arts by Heritage Malta



Eh le, mhux ħa tħallasni? Jekk tibqa tgħid le se ngarak bil-ġebel! U l-istatwa baqgħet tgħid "Le".

Ġaħan’s Anger

So you think you are not going to pay me?  If you keep on insisting I am going to throw stones at you! But the statue continued saying “NO”

Gmiel Il-Ħrafa - Ir-raqda tal-kbir

Ir-raqda tal-kbir - The eldest’s Sleep 142x86cm

Mar daka kif qallu missieru; imma fil-ħdax u nofs kien rieqed u meta s-serp wasal f'nofs il-lejl, ġabar it-tuffieħa u mar għal-xogħlu.

Off he went, as his father had instructed him, but by eleven thirty he was sound asleep so that when the snake came by at mid-night he collected the apple and slithered off

it-tfal fl-għalqa minn Is-Sultan Kibritlu Ghadma
Waslet ix-xitwa, u fuq dik ir-roqgħa ħamrija fejn il-parrukkier kien ħaffer il-ħofra, kiber ħafna ħafur twil. It-tfal tar-rgħajja jaqtgħu minnu biex jgħamluh tbiebet; iżda b'għġaeb kbir, meta jonfħu ġo fih, kull betbut beda jghid: "is-sultan kibritlu għadma....is-sultan kibirlu qarn!" - Is-sultan kibritlu għadma....is-sultan kibirlu qarn!, Ruben Zahra, Ħrejjef Maltin
