The Tièbèle's Cour Royale - the colorful and fortress-like windowless traditional houses of the Kassenas
After construction, the Kassena women makes murals on the walls using colored mud and white chalk by use of guinea-fowl feathers. The motifs and symbols are either taken from everyday life, or from religion and belief. The finished wall is then carefully burnished with stones. Finally, the entire surface is coated with a natural varnish made by boiling pods of néré, the African locust bean tree.
Kassena people build their houses entirely of local materials, that are earth, wood, straw and dung.
Front doors are only about three feet tall, which keeps the sun out and makes enemies difficult to strike. Enemies who like to enter the house have to bend down deeply, so the residents are easily able to kill the intruder by a deadly strike .
