An attractive Malagasy village of the Betsileo people

An attractive Malagasy village of the Betsileo people who live southwest of the capital, Antananarivo. Most houses in the village are double-storied with kitchens and living quarters located on the first floor. Almost all of them have wooden balconies and some have outside staircases. Livestock is often kept in the ground floor of a house overnight. The Betsileo are industrious people and expert rice farmers. Their terraced, irrigated paddy fields are a feature of Madagascars southern landscape

This print showcases an alluring Malagasy village belonging to the Betsileo people, nestled in the southwest region of Antananarivo, Madagascar's capital. The village exudes a unique charm with its double-storied houses that house both kitchens and living quarters on the first floor. Each dwelling boasts wooden balconies, some even adorned with outside staircases, adding to the picturesque scenery. The villagers' industrious nature is evident in their expertise as rice farmers. Their terraced and irrigated paddy fields are a prominent feature of Madagascar's southern landscape. As night falls, it is not uncommon to find livestock sheltered on the ground floors of these houses. Stepping into this African community reveals a thriving agricultural scene where small holdings dot the land. The Betsileo people have mastered their craft over generations, cultivating rice with exceptional skill and dedication. This awe-inspiring image captures not only the beauty of African landscapes but also highlights the significance of agriculture within local communities like Andohatangona. It serves as a reminder of how cultures intertwine with nature to create breathtaking scenes that captivate our senses.
