The ritual paintings are usually created on the inside walls of village huts. The walls are made of a mixture of branches, earth, and red brick that make a red ochre background for the paintings.

A bamboo stick is chewed at the end to give it the texture of a paintbrush. Walls are painted only to mark special occasions such as weddings or harvests.
