The African Village Where Every House Is A Work Of Art
Savannah in Burkina Faso is one of the most popular tourist destination. Except beautiful sun-drenched lands there is an extraordinary village of Tiébélé. The citizens are the Kassena people, who first settled the region in the 15th century, making them one of the oldest ethnic groups in Burkina Faso. Almost every house in the village looks like a work of art. Some of the art is symbolic while a lot of it is purely decoration. The village is extremely isolated and closed to outsiders. Most likely to ensure the conservation and integrity of their structures and to protect the local traditions. But Belgian traveler Rita Willaert managed to visit it and took astonishing photographs. Then she published them on her Flickr account.
