See cow dung turned into art. In Rwanda, a group of women create objects of beauty from the unlikely material of cow dung. The art form, called Imigongo, is a tradition that dates back centuries. On a wooden base, the artists create geometric patterns from the dung. When it dries, they apply bold paints of their own making with natural pigments of black, white, red, yellow, and gray. A newly-formed art cooperative is preserving an art that almost died out with the 1994 genocide. Now the members, many who are widows from that time, are gaining recognition for this unusual practice that they have kept alive, and that has helped them to survive.
