KORHOGO TAPESTRIES

Korhogo is the most important city of the Senufo country, in the center of Ivory Coast. The colour of the Korhogo traditional tapestries is black, and recently the colours brown and ochre have been added. They use to represent animals, and moments of the Senoufo initiation rites. Designs are schematic and flat. They just represent the main lines, without details. The outlines are thick, surrounding the whole figure. Light is not taken into consideration.
