It was not until Margaret Trowell drew attention to them that the artistic symbolic importance of the black and white patterns in Bahima huts became clear.

That these were a form of writing, just like the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt. The patterns were a form of communication about people and their environment. They depicted vegetation, astronomy, architecture, games, war, beauty and other attributes.

C.M. Sekintu worked as artist-technician of the Ugandan Museum and later as its first African curator.

K. P. Wachsann was an artist and longtime curator at the Uganda Museum.
