botswana, art of the kalahari brought to the CITIES of USA/ EUROPE
Botswana Art has shown marks of excellence since the Stone Age. Around the Kalahari Desert, one can explore the paintings by the Khoisan communities
which are found to be as old as twenty thousand years. These communities
mostly lived on hunting and their art displays that action and effort. The
figures that mark their artistic works are the animals, hunting weapons and
human figures. This tradition of art in Botswana continues till date, but
several modern aspects have been adopted. The artists and sculptors of
Botswana have established their control over the art of painting and
sculpture over the years. The Botswana art is appreciated even in the
The traditional music of Botswana is a rich form of art. CD's are quite profitable!
The different ethnic groups of Botswana have given shape to different forms of folk music in Botswana. The different forms of Botswana folk music include:
Art lovers from all across the world flock to hear the Botswana's musicians
play their folk music in the annual festival of Botswana music in the
National Music Eisteddfod in Selebi-Phikwe. GET THEIR CDs, either
wholesale by the dozen or by the hundred.
The other forms of rural Botswana art are displayed in the various baskets crafted by the village women from Mokola palm and local dyes. Thamaga Pottery and Oodi Weavers are the other notable artistic communities of Botswana, who have contributed to the art of Botswana for years. USE "GOOGLE IMAGE" on these words, take a look at the designs. Imagine what a purse made of such a well woven basket would bring in EUROS or DOLLARS. Imagine a Kalahari pot or design on a pillow or shawl or tapestry The money that such a RARE ITEM would bring in NYC, PARIS or LONDON.
Have you seen the prices that one American dealer gets for a few INDIAN THINGS? She is MARLA MALLETT . A small HINDU cotton purse is 400$. An AFRICAN TEXTILE of cotton can be a thousand dollars! SET UP your own trade route, you who read this. From India to NYC. From BOTSWANA to PARIS or LONDON or SWITZERLAND. FIND THE BOUTIQUES via CRAIGS LIST. DESIGNATE your agents in EUROPE, NYC, BEVERLY HILLS, HOLLYWOOD OFFER things that nobody can get! KALAHARI DESIGNS.
KALAHARI DESIGN is trendy. Imagine it on a pillow, done in fabric, textile, woven or painted. YOU STUFF the pillow in the BIG CITY where you sell it, not at POINT OF ORIGIN where you get ten inch spider eggs
LOOK AT THESE IMAGES of the SAN PEOPLE of Botswana
Better than Picasso!! And ole PABLO gets $l00,000 for a bowl of simple French clay Pottery.
Imagine it done on a bowl. same color as that rock, AFRICAN CLAY. CHEAP at l00$
THE SAN PEOPLE did that kind of art and STILL COULD. Now, you can't pull their art off the desert rocks but you can get those people in Botswana to create it on baskets,bowls fabric, ceramics, plaques. and make it look much the same those people can draw like their ancestors l0,000 years ago. Sell it in Germany Paris, London. You get the money from many small shipments of art to build a BIG life. MANY SMALL trades a dozen things here, a hundred there, add up. EVEN relatively inexpensive things like BASKETS.
Their baskets are so beautiful & intricate that they could sell for l00$ each This is kalahari UTILITARIAN ARTICLE For carrying edibles around the desert. VERY USEFUL to westerners, if they were flatter, more like
a PURSE SHAPE with a longer handle for putting over the shoulder, a stronger handle to carry it through the streets of New York, in your hand. I wonder what they cost per piece, there. by the dozen there. Incredible workmanship. BUY l00 of them. BUT REDESIGN them more like the COACH BAG BELOW. What would the artisans charge? Could a village even MAKE l00 of them? THIS COACH BAG IS PROBABLY A THOUSAND BUCKS. WHY NOT COPY the LINES but with BOTSWANA WEAVE and DESIGN?
