These are readable pictures of a few partial pages (excerpts) taken from Praise and Teasing: Narrative Songs of the Hadiyya in Southern Ethiopia written by Prof. Ulrich Braukämper and Dr. Tilahun Mishago. The excerpts showcase both the beauty of the art and how the art was used to praise Prof. Ulrich Braukämper. There is one more poem at the bottom, a typical back-and-forth teasing song between young male and female in those days.
