Decorated Basotho house – It is a tradition where women decorate a house after the men have finished building the house.
The decorative designs are soft and flowing geometric patterns. Woman apply it with their fingers, forks and sticks on the walls of houses.
Patterns are sometimes coloured with natural pigments or commercial paint and stains. Stones, embedded in mud and relief designs are sometimes used as a more permanent effect.
