The Museum/Art Gallery
The Beads museum is a part of the BEATS OF BEADS Art-center. It displays a huge collection of beaded artifacts from East-Africa (clothing, vessels, bowls, jewelry etc') and exposes the visitors to the diversity of colors, styles, and tribal identity as expressed in the beads!
In Africa, beading is not only the creation of jewelry, but an important way of expressing personal and social identity - The size of the beads, their shape, color, how they are woven and the finished product - indicate their creator: to which ethnic group does the woman belong? Is she a child, unmarried or married? Does she have children? and so on.
This is why the bead works of Africa are so diverse and so special.
