Thank you for your continued support and to Dave (Mistere) for his UA, much appreciated.
A few weeks ago the management at the waterfront complex in Cape Town decided to launch an initiative to paint the stairs going up from the Clock tower precinct to the city of Cape Town. It is called the Lalela project. In the spirit of Design Capital 2014 the Clocktower stairs were transformed with a colourful Ndebele styled design by a group of enthusiastic students from Hout bay. The youngsters spent two days of their school holidays painting the steps
In the 18th Century the Ndebele people of South Africa created their own tradition and style of house painting their mud huts. The vibrant symbols and expressions portray communications of personal prayer, self identification, values, emotions and marriage.The women are the traditional designers of this art. The tradition and style of the wall painting is passed down through the generations.
The versions are more of the steps from different angles with Saturday shadows
