Margaret Courtney-Clarke has traveled to remote dwellings in the Transvaal to photograph the art of Ndebele women, whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house.

(A) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house

(B) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses

(C) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and they are in styles that vary from woman to woman and house to house

(D) with murals brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their style varies among women and houses

(E) with murals that are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their styles vary among women and houses

Could anybody tell me what does the relative pronoun mean? I think it seems not mean for women? Women's mural is so weird.

mural is like a big wall painting, so in this sentence they are depicting characteristics of the women being discussed here. I hope it helps, it's kind of a weird sentence.

Hi praveen and others.

I have viewed the link you posted.

But I still doubt that the relative pronoun means women.

No one would said women's mural or women's geometrical symmetries.

How do you think about ?

thank you.

yes Indeed this is a difficult and confusing question. "whose" here refers to women and their refers to murals.
This has mutiple modifying phrases making it very confusable to the reader. However, this sentence is grammatically right
