Story Behind the Art:
The technique and motifs for dyeing with mud is a centuries old tradition of the Bamana tribe, passed down from mother to daughter. The process calls for numerous applications of iron rich mud, which is gathered and fermented for up to one year. This process is paired with traditional art forms of batik dyeing and carving. This group works to strengthen the unification of African tribes by actively working on the promotion of intertribal peace.
