My pictures aren't great. Sometimes I can get good pics with the iPhone...not so much on this day. But this gives you an idea of what it was like.
|There were tons of beads and the prices were amazing. Too bad I already have quite a few. I wasn't really in the market for beads.|
|Close up of a statue. It was probably 6 feet tall.|
|Another really large statue|
|I have been looking for bronze leopards for a while. Although a large one (or two) like this wasn't in the budget...this year. I did get a small one. They are from Nigeria.|
|The center statue is a power figure. It is used to contain and control a spiritual force. The box in the stomach will be packed with medicines in resin to attract the spirit. A nail or blade is driven in the figure each time the spirit is invoked.|
