Ditema: Some Decorated Sotho Buildings

The Sotho tradition of decorating the outside of their houses with painted and engraved patterns and pebbles set into plaster is fast disappearing. Less well-known than the Ndebele mural art, it is a particularly beautiful form of vernacular architectural decoration. Some examples of this traditional art form are featured here, as well as a number of examples of later Sotho mural art
