Women of Ndebele

For generations the women of the Ndebele of southern Africa have produced an art of remarkable richness and vitality.  In their ceremonial beadwork and in particular in large murals that cover the exterior walls of their mud dwellings, the Ndebele women have created designs that are at once ancient and modern in their simplicity, their bright colors, and bold abstract patterns.  Ndebele: The Art of an African Tribe, by Margaret Courtney-Clark, captures the range and skills of these artisans.
