A little inspiration from the Ndebele

I'm not usually one for knowing my branches of Zulu tribes but the Ndebele tribe of Zimbabwe are very Etro S/S 08. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Etro were inspired by the Ndebele's bold geometric paintings and stripy woollen garments, and not the other way around. I wish my house was like this, somehow beige stone just isn't all that inspiring.

The reason for all this culture would be my AS art exam. The 'question' I have chosen is the arts and crafts of Africa so if anyone can think of ANYTHING that would inspire me in this area I would be supremely grateful as I don't know what the frick to do basically.
