Plaited wall decoration "Mbenge", large

 This wall decoration, a decorative basket-bowl, is made of plaited Ilala palms artfully. Due to different coloured materials, great, individual patterns emerged.

Traditional bowl as great wall decoration 

For you this is a beautiful decoration for your wall, but traditionally the bowls were used to present fruits. They were also needed to cover fictile "ukhambas" which were used to store beer. The bowls should protect the clay pots and the beer against insects. The plaited bowl is perfectly suited as wall decoration. Therefore you should turn the bottom side outwards because not until then the great patterns as gorgeous Africa decoration come into their own.
