The traditional art of decorating the home has been practised in Southern Africa for centuries although much of this creative art form is unknown to the rest of the world. In 1987, the chance discovery of an exceptionally decorated home convinced Sandy and Elinah Grant that they had to find out if more decorated homes were to be found elsewhere. The result of their seven year quest is this throughly researched book. It provides a visual record of many of Botswana's wonderfully decorated homes and shows them in their proper setting, the magnificent traditional towns and villages. The book describes the changing nature of settlement and home. It describes the characteristics of traditional decoration, introduces the reader to many of the outstanding women who still practice this remarkable vernacular art form, describes the materials and colours they use and the techniques they employ. The book should help to prompt widespread recognition of Botswana's rich cultural heritage.
