In a tribe the matriarchal organization, and that is why: the first the man, having fallen from the sky, was not able to make anything, did not know, that it is possible to eat. So also has died of famine and thirst if has not met the first woman - Great mother who has given to drink - has fed him and has prompted to woodcarving. Since then, all women in a tribe since a birth named mothers, even those to whom the destiny has not presented happiness of motherhood. Women operate affairs and the decision, but the basic work make, they too do. Men cut out from an ebony and help on a facilities a little.
Figures in a picture are stylized under figurines Makande, the big head means wisdom, big hands symbolize force, big lips with corners downwards - thirst and a distress, big eyes and smiling lips - kindness. The vessels represented in the center - stylization under Tanzanian ceramics which, as a rule, becomes covered by the figures drawn on crude clay. Figures are always symbolical, but sometimes creation by author's, sometimes traditional, in some cases, concern to applicability of utensils, and in the some people, to event for which it is produced.
