In the town of Tiebele in Burkina Faso, a country in west Africa the Gurunsi people live in lively patterned houses. In this society the men are in charge of building, while the women are in charge of painting and decorating the home. The women create their beautiful "frescoes" using natural colours: red, white and black on an okra background. Photo from Evy's Inspirations on Tumblr
