Basadi

"Basadi" is the Setswana word for women.

 

This piece is an ode to the women that inspire me. In Setswana culture, women have to cover their heads at special gatherings. Growing up, I saw women wear these headwraps in various styles, colours, and patterns.

A closer look at the base will reveal handwritten names of the women who inspire me.
