Patch on lower right corner on back "O.R. Indluyenkolo Betty Mgidi 4. Ridenlay road Primose Hill via Bedford view Patch on lower middle "Indluyenkolo I made this painting of my church in Weltevrede in Mpumulanga, because Heaven is my throne and the earth my Footstool. A temple can be built and nourish me but those who choose their own ways are delighting in their sins and are doomed. God will not accept their offerings. That's why we must trust in God and pray everyday so in the end you must rest in peace and your soul must be accepted by God. God bless us all in heaven. Betty."

Quilted and beaded wall hanging from South Africa. White cotton ground. There is an image of a church in South Africa, with a cross from the roof. The building is drawn onto the wall hanging with markers or fabric paint in multiple bright colors. The piece is quilted between the blocks of color indicating areas of the building. The bottom edge of the wall hanging has a 3/4" strip of beadwork. Four beaded rings hang down from the beadwork trim. Three beaded leather embellishments are attached below the church image. Two of them appear in the shape of a hand. There is a cotton sleeve on the top back of the wall hanging.
