Spent the Day at the CMA

and I have to repeat what Cathy said....the CMA ROCKS!!!  I am such an idiot for not spending more time there.  I rush to the art museums in other cities and have ignored what we have here.  I spent most of my time in the African collection but managed to walk around some of the other rooms.  I took a ton of pictures. 

Face Pendants from the Cote D'Ivoire

Wooden statue from Cote D'Ivoire (this pic is from the CMA website)

Face mask from Cote d'Ivoire

Necklace from Nigeria

I'll put up more later.

What a great day you had! We are very lucky to have such a treasure right at our doorstep. I don't go nearly enough either! I think I'll schedule myself a day...
