The Zora Mann work defines itself by it density because it owns several kinds of colors, repetitive and contraversely forms who create and superpose themselves in saturated compositions of lines and curves. The "Waganga" whose title means "healers" respects that and helps to open oneself to non western cultures. "Waganga" is also a title of a short movie directed by the Zora Mann father about a man removing curses by doing small incisions inside bodies. The Zora Mann making process mixes slow and restlesness. She begins by drawing slowing for concentrating and after work with restlesness by putting together elements that own contradictory codes. Zora Mann uses differents kinds of arts (African Art, Western Art, Psychedelic Art) but still improve an attraction for science - fiction, psychedelic art and some human inner states. The visitor can watch "the shields" serial meaning functionality, energy and underlining forms. He follows his trip by "the pearls" coming from flip - flops made in Asia worn and lost in Africa. With the help of a NGO "Ocean Sole" the Africans take that shoes and transform them in rubber pearls. These pearls are shipped to Berlin for being used by Zora Mann. This action gives work to African people and protect also the environment. The visitor wonders himself when he will see "the watercolors" underlining the artist dreams and he will finish his trip by "the ceramic sculptures" inspired by the Zora Mann grand mother jewels.
