Interesting objects. So similar to many of the Native American artifacts. MB

Prospero,
Although I'm a caucasian born in Europe and although I have visited just 8 African countries, some more than once, I love this continent so very much that, yes, you can say I have an African soul! :-)
P.S. - I lived for 1,5 years there.

These inheritances are holy things.
I feel solemn in front of them.

Thank you for showing a wonderful thing.

Awesome African art! Did they allow you to take photos or were you sneaky . . .

I get the feeling that your time in Africa added much to your sensitive soul.
