Back in the Netherlands for a week… abysmal weather half of the time :-(.
Anyway tried to make the most of it!
First off, with rain pissing down outside, we (my dad and I) visited the State Museum of Ethnology in Leiden. Great museum… and I took too many great photos! So I just show a few highlights.
Like this: a Papua New Guinean ceremonial hut – acquired by the museum after it had been used. I thought it nice how the colourful mackerel tin wrappers were used!
And on a quick world tour – a Mayan ball player…
on to Africa: dolls used to resolve conflicts by the tribe shaman (hoping I remember all the words right :-S)
And finally, more Africa, a detail of a cane – I believe made for “export” or “tourists”. Note the depiction of Europeans with their silly hats.
