In African culture, a girl child is close to her mother and is taught the proper culture of girls, as well as doing the normal work of home. As you can see in the art painting, there is a young girl and she is coming to you!! In her right hand she is holding a covered tool basket called (Agaseke in Kinyarwanda language). A covered basket in Kinyarwanda culture means a secret store.

What image are you reading on her face? She is looking down, looking silent, confused, and unhappy. When a girl reaches puberty, she begins to be surprised by the changes of her body, which makes her take a lot of time to think. It would be very difficult for her to ask her mother to explain it to her.

And all these questions, he chooses to keep quiet and keep them a secret.

One of the qualities that characterizes her, is that what she is being told, she does not really understand. That is why only one ear appears in the drawing. When she is shown something, she does not care about it because their are many thoughts fighting in her heart. That is why her eyes are not visible.

Inspite of all the secrets and all of her troubles, she always takes special care of them. The bag in her hand symbolizes this.
