This painting on canvas by Hussain Gewashi depicts people entering Tripoli's old quarter, the medina, through the Bab al Khendig gate. The scene includes people on foot, a horse drawn cart, a pair of palm trees, the arched gate entrance, and a minaret with a green roof. The layered impasto painting captures impressions of the movement of the walking figures and their shadows along with colorful highlights of their clothing and market wares in magenta, yellow, orange, and green. The canvas is framed and dated 1976 with a signature in the bottom right corner.
