Litema: a wall art

Litema: a wall art

Litema: a wall art practiced by Sotho women
The intertwining of geometrical figures
Renewed over the seasons

An art that would have inspired the creation of a writing
Says Ditema tsa dinoko, or "the ditema syllabary" (in sesotho)
Or Isibheqe Sohlamvu in isiZulu
A pure wonder of colors, shapes, and creativeness ...
Intended to be transcribe to Bantu languages of the south…
Besides Sesotho and isiZulu,
Tswana, a language spoken in particular in Botswana or in South Africa, in Namibia,
But also in Swati, the national language of Eswatini,
Or Lozi, a language spoken in Zambia…

Peace is ukuthula in isiZulu
And kgotso (khotso) in Sesotho…


Litema : un art mural pratiqué par les femmes Sotho
Entrelacs de figures géométriques
Renouvelées au fil des saisons

Un art qui aurait inspiré la création d’une écriture
Dite Ditema tsa dinoko, soit « le syllabaire ditema » (en sesotho)
Ou encore Isibheqe Sohlamvu en isiZulu
Une pure merveille de couleurs, de formes, et d’inventivité…
Destinée à transcrire les langues bantoues du sud…
Outre le sesotho et l’isiZulu,
le tswana, langue parlée en particulier au Botswana ou encore en Afrique du sud, en Namibie,
Mais aussi le siSwati, langue nationale du Eswatini,
Ou encore le siLozi, langue pratiquée en Zambie…

La paix est ukuthula en isiZulu
Et kgotso (khotso) en sesotho…

Decades of segregationist politics

Les villes sud-africaines ont été durablement et profondément marquées par des décennies de politique ségrégationniste. Les défis posés aujourd'hui aux pouvoirs publics mais aussi aux chercheurs sont immenses et les réponses ne sont pas simples entre aspirations et besoins à court terme de populations démunies, et exigences du développement durable.
