Tour African Footprints (Under construction)

As you enter African Footprints, on your right you will see a Dogon man weaving. To his left you can see a basket of cotton bolls and in his left hand is a shuttle wound with handspun cotton thread. On the left you can just see the edge of the granary.
Here's a better view of the granary and the basket of cotton bolls and a close up of the granary door.
Here you see a sample of African mudcloth and an elaborately carved antelope.
As you continue, you'll see a display of masks from all over Africa.
The Ashanti King in his formal regalia is ready to receive visitors and supplicants. The king is lavishly adorned with gold jewelry.
A Turkana family are at the far end of the ARTSmobile. The Turkana women wear leather cloaks and skirts. Men and women both wear strings of beads, bracelets, and earrings. Some wear noserings as well. You can see the Turkana boy herding a cow.
It's easy to forget that Egypt is part of Africa. We are probably all familiar with Ancient Egypt however, throughout history Egypt has been a major trade route of Northern Africa.
An Ndebele woman sits beside her elaborately painted house surrounded by Ndebele beadwork. She wears a beded jocolo, a flat apron worn by married women and has a striped blanket around her shoulders.
A San family sits in front of a rock painted with living hunting scenes, typical to San rock art.
