Old

This is my last post in Our Beautiful World till September.
It is very difficult for me to blog from the beach house with restricted internet access.
This week's promt is
                                                          Old
chosen by Kisrty of  Handmade Little Things.
I chose for this blogpost to show you the old beautiful pieces of African Art that were exhibited in Tellogleion Institute in March.
All the pieces are from the private collection of Anastasios Levendis who lived and worked in Western Africa.
Old works of art ...
...made of metal....
 old paintings.....


 pictures made of beads.....
 thousands of beads.....






 paintings made of threads......





 sculpture....


 more metal sculpture....


But this horse was my favourite....
