The Ndebele, also called Transvaal Ndebele, people primarily located in the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces in South Africa, use intricate beadworks, elaborate wall paintings and distinctive ways of dressing to express their identity and culture. Primarily known for their artwork, Ndebele women use the wall art as means to express themselves and their self-worth. These intricate and colorful patterns are placed on the walls of their houses. Designs are planned beforehand, painted on freehand without prior layouts. They use their innovativeness in choice of colors and design intricacy to distinguish themselves from their peers. The backside and side walls of the house are often painted in earth color tones and adorned with simple geometric shapes outlined in black. Special care is given to the front walls of the house, where innovative and complex designs are painted in the brightest of colors. The Ndebele are also known for their beadwork. The different types of bead adornments convey messages of social connotations such as age sets and stages of growth from childhood to adulthood.
