No funny WW post this week?? Awww. I just finished reading and looking at your museum post below. Very interesting. And as you say, sometimes we forget that 50 years ago people were were not able to travel around the world like we do these days.

African art is in the air at our school where several teachers work on this theme with the pupils! Et on a un four à potier! Comme aujourd'hui on travaille pour remplacer le lundi de pentecote, notre directeur va nous apprendre comment émailler nos poteries. Bon mercredi Gattina.

Interesting burial arrangement. One wonders what filled to the jars, and why they were arranged that way.

Oh wow! Looks like all that jewelry would have weighted him down! Love the pottery surrounding him.!

Amazing. Your photo inspires me to learn more about the why.

Wow, look at all the jewelry buried with the person. I wonder what the story is behind it.

Interesting shot.

It looks like the dead person was wealthy by the standards of the time. He took so much with him to the next life.

Interesting photo! The dead person must be rich.
