Unique in both style and substance, traditional Rwandan Imigongo art dates back to the eighteenth century, and as legend has it, was named by a prince after the domain he ruled. And now, one female run co-operative, which bears the prince's name Kakira, is reviving the craft, which almost completely died out during the Rwandan genocide. 8 women who survived the 1994 Genocide, came together and founded The Kakira Imigongo Cooperative in 1997 and now with 15 artisan women they design, paint and earn money for their families.
With its geometric shapes and bright, natural colors, “imigongo” cow dung art would look right at home in a Brooklyn living room. This traditional art form, which was nearly lost during the 1994 genocide, is once again flourishing across the Land of a Thousand Hills.

Around a third of the surface of the Earth is made up of desert
The desert has always been an imagined place. From cowboy movies to religious retreats, to frenzied music festivals, the desert is where we seek the divine, escape and have an ecstatic experience.
And the impact of what we imagine the desert to be has had a profound impact on real deserts. Seeing them as desolate, empty spaces was central to testing atomic bombs in them. Or allowing urban and suburban developments, as with cities like Phoneix, Ariz., to continue expanding ever further into the desert.
Authors, poets, monks and philosophers have historically used the desert to convey complex, even contradictory, ideas about God and spirituality.
