Men and women of different cultural and religious backgrounds were gathering in the market square in Ouidah, Benin (West Africa) to embroider a red circular cloak made of heavy linen with their own designs turning it into a social ápainting. They were addressing what in their view is worthy of protection.

All participants are wearing self-designed outfits that match the same ochre yellow color of the embroidery yarn.
