Early 20th Century Yei Beaded Apron, Botswana

About

A stunning apron from Botswana, featuring strong geometric designs in dense, graphic sections that seem almost to evoke an abstract landscape with suggestions of mountain, sky, and shadow. Inverting the continuity of black and white at the equator of the composition adds an element of asymmetry to the largely mirrored design an intriguing technique found in other Yei aprons. The tight, exacting beadwork is sewn directly onto a hide backing. Apron is on a black fabric mount which can easily be removed.
