Ndebele house painting

"Ndebele [South Africa] women paint colorfully with the original geometrical pattern on the wall of their houses. These beautiful patterns of paintings are their own expression and handed down from a mother to a daughter." via

How amazing are the colors and patterns! I love the use of color other cultures use, it makes me so sad to live in a country who is so concerned with not offending anyone that all the houses are a bland neutral shade.
