Baobab

Baobab

According to author P. Garlake of The Hunter’s Vision, women figures are denoted by larger, plumber bodies, large buttocks and deeply curved backsides, and stacked up breasts. Women in these societies were the gatherers and could be denoted wearing skins, tasseled aprons, carrying babies or long sticks. Women often dug for roots, water and gathered food. Women would usually set out in smaller groups to do their chores. This is one such representation.
