More South African Embroideries

Here are 3 more of the small embroideries, 2.75" x 3.75" made by the Venda women in South Africa. There is more information about this group of women in yesterday's post.

The Dancing Elephant was made by Ema. You can read more about her in yesterday's post.

Tshimbeloni was made by Eni. She is the supervisor of her embroidery group. She hands out yarn and checks quality. In the mornings the women arrive at her house and then they sit together and chat and embroider.

The Lions and the Zebras was also made by Eni.
