Most cultures are influenced by religious art and design and African home decor is no different. However, being such a large continent with a very long history its ancient design is bolstered by Muslim art of North and West Africa, the Christian art and design of East Africa, and the ritualistic expression of many parts of the continent. One thing has remained with African art and design and that is the bold, abstract expression where fine detail gives way to individual interpretation and our stencils focus on the ritualistic origins of the broader culture.
