The village of interest is Nubia Village, Egypt, and what’s got me so interested are the decorative homes.
Using vivid colour and geometric images, there is an impulse to draw attention to ones home, especially to the doorway, as this is a symbol of family.
The sense of family is strong, all are welcome and many can reside under the one roof. Therefore, homes are extended to accomodate growing families.
You can see from these images the true spirit of a village….
“One man cannot build a house, but 10 men can easily build 20 houses”-Nubian Proverb
