Anybody have pictures of the interiors of traditional Ashanti and Sudano Sahelian architecture? I find it hard to find interior photos, likely there aren't many I presume. I've been looking around a lot for interior shots of the buildings of many different Sub Saharan ethnic groups and primarily come up empty.

Apologies for the thumbnail sizes, uploaded using my phone. Maybe someone can quote the pics in their actual sizes and repost them.

Happy holidays everyone.

Just need to click on the thumbnails. Interesting photos. But you need to work camera skills though.

I appreciate the thread.
