In This African Village, Every Home Is A Magnificent Work Of Art


In the landlocked country of Burkina Faso, nestled between Mali and Ghana in west Africa is a small, circular village, only about 1.2 hecares. The village is called Tiébélé and it’s special because each home is a work of art.

Tiébélé is home to the Kassena people, one of the oldest ethnic groups in the territory, having settled in the 15th century. Tiébélé is known for its beautiful architecture, called Gourounsi architecture, and their elaborately decorated walls.

Burkina Faso is, without a doubt, a very poor country. Possibly the poorest in the world. But while they are poor in money, they are rich in culture. The country carries on its cultural legacy where others have abandoned theirs.0a21e2f3fbf8b9feca426c8cc4326ba6
