Imigongo Royal Tutsi Rwanda Black & White Geometric Tableaux | 12 x 16"
These rectangular tableaux are a modern adaptation of a traditional Tutsi art form in Rwanda. Traditionally, a paste using cow dung, ash and clay (the ash eliminates all bacteria and odor) create a bas-relief design in geometric patterns which are then painted black & white. In modern times artists excelling in the craft have proliferated and their designs have become increasingly creative.
This painting measures 12 1/4 x 15 5/8" (31 x 40 cm)
