Visual Description : This is a traditional narrative piece of art showing African imagery. The entire image is divided into six quadrants, each quadrant with a different scene within. The narrative scenes include figures dressed in white robes and doing different kinds of daily activities such as grooming, weaving, carrying supplies, and cooking. The background of every square is the same with green grass and a sunset sky. The style is very simplistic and graphic. The colours are very bright and include green, red, blue, yellow, orange, black and brown. The top right quadrant has a line of text which could possibly be a signature.
