Be Art Smart

Zambia doesn't really nurture young artists; therefore, there isn't an overabundance of art in the country. However, if you are interested in seeing some of these fabulous paintings (by artists such as Enock Ilunga), there are many are on display in the Lusaka National Museum.

Further, you can find traditional carvings (masks, tables, chairs, etc.) on many streetcorners throughout Lusaka and in the more "touristy" rural areas. Be sure to check out the hand-carved backgammon boards; the three-legged tables; and the "Chief's Chairs"!
