Subject: Exhibition -- Between the Beads: Reading African Beadwork
Spatial Coverage: Africa -- Cameroon
Abstract: By the early 20th century, unmarried Mundang women wore apron-like imported glass beaded panels during dances. Beaded designs include an endless variety of geometric shapes, most often rows of lozenges or zigzags, although abstractions of animals are also featured. It has been suggested that the patterns were appropriate to the age group and social status of the woman.
