Indigenous People Study

From images I have found on the internet and in books, I have created some studies to help me understand design, colour and pattern and to pick out areas that I have found of interest. I discovered that a lot of the images originated from Ethiopia, so in some of them you can see a common theme. From these studies I will choose a certain group of people to study further in order to create a design. I want to ensure that my designs are based on knowledge and fact, as it is vitally important to treat peoples’ cultural heritage with sensitivity. I do not want to unwittingly cause offence or make viewers feel I have trivialised important values and traditions. This is a very important subject, that involves rich cultures and lives that need to be treated with respect.
