Ndebele and Naartjie


9x12 in
oil on canvas

I am very attracted and full of admiration for the artwork of the Ndebele Tribe north and north west of Pretoria, South Africa.Their colourful and graphic patterns and motifs adorn walls, houses and interiors and get taught from mother to daughter since beginning of time.........
The naartjie is a well loved fruit from the mandarin/tangerine family.
Together, they make a striking combination!
