Artist Jen Mazer turned to South Africa for the design inspiration for her contribution to Sing for Hope’s Pop Up Pianos project in NYC. Mazur talked to New York mag:

“The Ndebele are known for their colorfully decorated homes and clothing,” she says. “This is my take on their traditional patterned designs that were believed to have sacred powers—much like the healing power of the music that will come from the piano.”
