Gurunsi Earth Houses of Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a small country near Ghana. This is what the villages looks like. They are covered with intricate ornamentation and motifs. "The motifs can illustrate just about anything from objects used in normal daily life, to religion and beliefs, to decorative patterns that distinguish one house from the other. the artwork is then embossed with rocks and etchings that highlight the designs and give a truly unique character."
