Toute science n’est exacte que jusqu’à preuve de son contraire



I hope you’ve been able to understand the importance and ubiquity of symbols at this point. In several countries, the motifs are present in several variations. Many kinds of symbols coexist. Since 2000 B.C., the figures have been representing very specific situations and concepts evoked solely by the image of the subject or model. They are used on fabrics, sculptures etc… The allegorical motifs and colors are very diverse, and are able to adapt to different cultures, moments, and events of life.

It is possible to find fabrics adorned with “M’buti” symbols by the Pygmies in Cameroon, with the richest and most complex motifs inspired by ancient techniques such as the Tibetan have done, and through the colorful blends of the Maasai. It is interesting to note that some racy symbols are reserved for privacy.

All in all, you have surely been able to grasp that humans have been dressing themselves for a relatively long period of time. Fabrics and symbols have been an important part of expressing one’s rank, be it by weaving or the use of symbols. None of these symbols have been haphazardly conceived; they exist for the fabric to live, move and absorb life.
