Africa | The Ndebele Bridal Ensemble from the 20th Century from the Front | “Ndebele brides’ beaded attire includes a richly embroidered blanket; a bridal apron; a beaded veil; a neck ornament; neck, arm, and leg rings; and a distinctive train. On their wedding day, brides receive a grass broom with a beaded handle, alluding to their new domestic duties. In older works, such as the train, white beads predominate and geometric motifs are delicate.”
