More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

Last week I published pictures of the African Museum in Brussels from outside.

There were wooden elephants exposed in the parc



And here is what I saw inside

Wild stuffed animals. The museum is very old and in the beginning of 1900 there were no tourists in Africa to see them alive.

A ceremony costume


work tools



and statues.

Of course there was a lot more.

What a great way to have an exotic travel experience in your own home area. I have to admit the elephants do take the prize however...they are so cool, and I love elephants in general.

Love the elephants too! And african art in general. I have an elephant sculpture at home I had received by my grand father. Quand je pense que ses défenses sont en ivoire!!! Heureusement les éléphants sont un peu plus protégés maintenant.

I must have been a kid last time I visited the museum!! Those elephants look like the ones who were on exhibition in Antwerp two years ago!

The wooden sculptures of the elephants must have been cool to see in person!

I love the wood in the elephant. It has the right touch.

I've always wanted to go on an African safari... *sigh*
