Mali Woman with Shawl


Djenné – “Mali Woman with Shawl”

Djénné is a town and an urban commune in the Inland Niger Delta region of central Mali. With their fine, aquiline facial features, commonly associated with North African peoples, these Muslim cattle herders live primarily in the Inland Niger River Delta between Mopti and Djenné. Fulani women are readily recognisable by their exquisite adornments–large gold earrings known as “kwottenai kanye”, heavy silver rings and bangles, and hairdos that incorporate large amber beads, Maria Theresa silver dollars, and Venetian glass beads.
