The Nyangatom woman

Abstract

The Nyangatom woman is a continuation of research focusing on various African cultures. With this piece I wanted to further expand my knowledge of working with batik resist technique. I also wanted to experiment with beading on leather. This piece was inspired by the Nyangatom tribe of the Omo Valley located in Southwest Ethiopia crossing over into the Sudan border.
