The Kuba have been described as "a people who cannot bear to leave a surface without ornament" (Wikipedia). Textile conservator Ann E. Svenson describes Kuba textiles as "simultaneously bold and intricate, dramatic and subdued, irregular and ordered, as well as asymmetrical and balanced. In all cases they are fluid, visually engaging and full of surprises".
