Here are a few pictures I took over the past couple of months.  Note the snake theme.  These are taken of two different "Simbo".  Simbo tend to be hunters and present themselves as supernatural practitioners.  The two full color wall paintings are from the home and office of a Simbo who is a "Jo tigi" - he uses power objects to protect and to cause harm.  These services are available for a fee.  The single drawing on the inside of a door from another Simbo.  He specializes in "La Tru" (the sacred sands).  He makes his living performing divination for local clientele.   I particularly like the "Turbo Eminem" - not sure what it is in reference to though.
