2nd Grade Senufo Mud Cloths

  Second grade artists learned about  Senufo mud cloths. This tribe in Africa creates stylized paintings of animals and also incorporates  geometric patterns. They are called "mud cloths" because they are literally painted with a special kind of mud and created to bring the hunters luck as they search for food for their families. The glow around the animals represents the animals spirit and energy.
