These works were made in Johannesburg by members of the Meropa Heritage Group, based in rural Limpopo. The artworks represent ‘city life’ from the perspective of the artists who modified traditional Ndebele forms to assemble the designs. The room’s architecture suggests that of a chapel, making the artworks evocative of stained glass windows.
