The term Ndebele refers to a relatively broad range of ethnic groups dispersed across Zimbabwe and the Transvaal province of South Africa. As in most African tribal cultures art for the Ndebele is a magic-religious activity. Mural decoration is the prerogative of the woman; it denotes her unique and ultimate relationship with the indly (home) and her social position. She paints because wall decoration is an accepted way of behavior handed done from mother to daughter, Francina Ndimade lives with her thirteen children in Mabhokho camp, Kwandebele. Francina painted all the buildings of the dwellings, assisted by her two eldest daughters. Although Ndebele murals are primarily abstract, they include such pictorial motifs as animals, light bulbs and razor blades. The artist sift through the images around them, choosing the most graphic and geometric forms and shapes to incorporate into their compositions. Francina Ndimande has executed a large wall decoration for the University of Maastricht in the building designed by Jo Coenen.
