African House Modern Rug by Nanimarquina provides a link to the earth, the source of life. This is a beautiful combination of traditional and contemporary which has an enchanting story. It begins with the fascinating murals painted by the South African Besotho tribe on the outside walls of their houses. The women décorate the adobe walls of their homes with vegetable and floral ornamentation, inventing wonderful allegorical motifs. They are the artistic expression of their prayers to their ancestors, from whom they implore plenty of rain, sun and peace for their village. This collection brings us closer to the cultural symbolism of these native peoples.
