C for parallelism but D for conciseness? I'm having a hard time deciding between "women whose murals" and "dwellings with murals" too.

Once again, this has to do with run-on sentences and appositive construction. A is best.

"whose murals are brilliantly colored" is a relative clause and it properly refers to "women" so D and E are out.
B and C have verb "are" which makes the latter part of the sentence become an independent clause but yet, the clause is not linked to the former part of the sentence by any conjunction such as "and". This creates a run-on sentence. Read on here: http://webster.commnet.edu/grammar/runons.htm

A's part starting with "their geometrical symmetries..." is an appositive properly refering to "women" and gives extra information on that noun.

Can we say that "Varies from x to y" is better than "varies among x(s)"
