'Chitambala'. From an exhibition 'Herself' by Mwamba Chikwemba
'Chitambala (head-wrap) forms the central theme in this artwork. I often wonder 'Why should we wear Chitambala?'. From the beginning of times, African women have been always wearing head-wraps. I grow up with my mother wearing them and she told me that we have to wear Chitambala for a respect and for a beauty that we possess as African women.'
