Tièbèlè the Painting Village- Photographer Anthony Pappone

  1. 1. In the south of Burkina Faso,there is a village near the border with Ghana, is a small size, called Tiébélé. This is the home of the Kassena people, one of the oldest ethnic groups who settled in the territory of Burkina Faso. i photographed the life the people and architecture of the houses richly decorated mud walls. The Kassena people build their houses entirely of local materials: earth, wood and straw. Soil mixed with straw and cow dung is moistened to a state of perfect plasticity, to shape almost vertical surfaces. Tiébélé’s houses are built with defense in mind, whether that be against the climate or potential enemies. the homes are designed without windows except for a small opening or two to let just enough light in to see, Roofs are protected with wood ladders that are easily retracted. the walls of the houses are decorated and hand painted by the women of the village done just before the rainy season and protects the outside walls from the rain. varnishing with néré all make the designs withstand wet weather, enabling the structures to last longer. En el sur de Burkina Faso, hay una aldea cerca de la frontera con Ghana, es de un tamaño pequeño , llamado de Tiébélé . Este es el hogar de la gente Kassena , uno de los grupos étnicos más antiguos que se asentaron en el territorio de Burkina Faso. fotografié la vida del pueblo y la arquitectura de las casas ricamente decoradas paredes de barro . Las personas Kassena construyen sus casas en su totalidad de materiales locales : tierra, madera y paja. Tierra mezclada con paja y estiércol de vaca se humedece a un estado de plasticidad perfecta, para dar forma a las superficies casi verticales . Casas de Tiebele se construyen con la defensa en la mente , ya sea contra el clima o enemigos potenciales. las viviendas están diseñadas sin ventanas a excepción de una pequeña abertura o dos para permitir que la luz suficiente para ver , techos están protegidos con escaleras de madera que se retraen fácilmente. las paredes de las casas están decoradas y pintadas a mano por las mujeres de la aldea hecho justo antes de la temporada de lluvias y protege las paredes exteriores de la lluvia. barnizado con néré todos hacen los diseños de soportar el clima húmedo , lo que permite las estructuras de durar más tiempo .
