Deep in a lovely Tumblr laberynth (I believe I was here) I came across an image of these graphic printed dwellings. How great are they!? Here is some more info:
“…Burkina Faso boasts a few simple gems, such as the village of Tiebele, renowned for its unique architecture…Dwellings are either square (for married couples) or round (for bachelors) and all elaborately decorated: black diamond patterns cover large areas of the reddish-brown walls. Drawings of snakes and crocodiles, both sacred animals, bestow protection”(Andrea Davoust)
I love how the shapes of the houses change based on marital status.
All of these lovely photos are by Rita Willaert and I stronlyg recommend you check out her Flickr stream chock full of inspiring images…
