From a lecture on #African #Architecture... "One is impressed above all by the symbolic imagery of traditional African building. Using mud may have certain technical disadvantages, but it is probably the most expressive of all materials. It not only lends itself brilliantly to surface decoration, but the very shapes of the buildings express their functions and their ideology." Shown here is a beautifully decorated house facade in Zaria, Nigeria.

Yaruba Shrine, Osun Osogbo sacred grove in Nigeria - "The dense forest of the Osun Sacred Grove, on the outskirts of the city of Osogbo, is one of the last remnants of primary high forest in southern Nigeria. Regarded as the abode of the goddess of fertility Osun, one of the pantheon of Yoruba gods, the landscape of the grove and its meandering river is dotted with sanctuaries and shrines, sculptures and art works in honour of Osun and other deities."
