Roy, The African Maroon tribes of Suriname, formerly Dutch Guiana, have
several distinct artforms including carved objects such as paddles, benches,
chairs, doors; calabash gourds are carved in intricate patterns and used as
containers and sometimes dishes; patchwork and applique capes in bold colors;
often the front facade of homes are painted in symmetrical designs.
"Afro-American Arts of the Suriname Rain Forest" by Sally and Richard Price
(U.CA Press, 1980) has great pictures. Good luck in your search!
