Description
Ndebele beadwork detail: from South Africa that I bought from illegal immigrants from Malawi in 2008 at a curio market near Hartebeespoort Dam, one hour from Johannesburg. This pattern is called after the Ndebele tribe that paint these blocks and triangles on their huts as ritual from folklore. The design is not unique or original, has no. copyright, it is a mere replica of a pattern used by the Ndebele tribe. The men from Malawi know that this colourful pattern sell well to tourist, they make a few and then take the money back to their home country. This design is popular and used very often as a background for African Safari logos or in a light box and has no copyright.
