Akwa kuta sona: tshota 2012
[ Connoisseur of the drawing: temple construction ]
This set of photographs use traditional
Cokwe forms; the Sona designs. In creating these drawings certain rules must be respected, which take into account the wisdom and the legends of these people. These drawings also respect rules of geometry and mathematics, at the same time that they evoke a strong sense
of identity. In this contemporary reading of an ancestral practice, Iris Chocolate pays tribute
to Angolan culture and its traditions.
