Culture Fix: Gemma Rodrigues on Zulu Personal Objects

 
Zulu-speakers, South Africa’s most populous ethnic group, have produced highly individualized arts of personal adornment for centuries. From sculpted staffs to intricate beadwork, these intimate objects accentuate bodily “zones of power.” Curator of Africa Arts Gemma Rodrigues discusses the development and use of these works, which proclaim status and identity.
