Art objects from different cultures can be very appealing.
While shopping in a discount store, I nearly keeled over when spotting some African figures on a shelf. Picking each one up and looking at it turned out to be a unique experience since each figure had on his or her own outfit and adornments. Not one was the same as the other and they were all only about seven inches tall!
Two mother figures had children close to them. One of them peeked out from his mother's skirt with a face no bigger than a little fingernail.
Tall and slender, the African figures seemed enchanting. It was impossible to buy just one or two so I bought all of them! After all, how could anyone split up a family?
Guess how much each one cost? One sweet dollar! How's that for a bargain?
They now line a windowsill in my home office and every time I see them, they make me happy. They are welcome in this American home.
It would be great to know what tribe or African nation they represent but to find that out would be a rather daunting task. So for now, they are just to be enjoyed!
