These wall paintings are applied to the side of the church where the men sit and evoke their world. They are the companions to the pieces that depict ‘Women’s Work’ on the South Side. Illustrations are, respectively, of carving, the sewing of mats, forestry, drums (and art), the construction of a house frame (the application of mud is for women), axe and hoe (brought by a man to the village of his wife), ng’anjo (iron smelting) and bow and arrow (which implies hunting).
