I take you on a walk through a typical souvenir shop in Egypt. It has a lot of success because the owner understood our mentality and has fixed prices so, you don't have to haggle. You will find Gods, pharaohs, kings and queens on all kind of things from a lighter through plates until toilet paper holders.

these should bring luck

and this is the God of Fertility, nice on your mantle piece or window sill

cats of course

mother of pearl boxes

When your read this I am sitting in the plane to fly home into the cold and grey Belgian weather.

I hope your flight went well.

Well... the only difference between Egyptian souvenir shops and American souvenir shops is our JUNK doesn't have GOD's on it! I hate souvenir shops... truly I do! It is all JUNK... no matter what it is!

Melli said...

Actually... I take that back! What I MEANT is... OURS don't have EGYPTIAN gods on them! We have more than our share of "religious" JUNK too!

Loree said...

Hmmm, I wonder who would actually purchase those fertility gods :)
