One of these little things 9: Buddha making a call under a baobab tree

Most people have those invaluable things in and around the house. It can be a souvenir from a place visited; memories from childhood, a heirloom or whatever. I’ve made a photographic inventory in our house and I publish the images in this blog, one by one. They are all in B&W.

Today is a bit funny. Two things at the same time. First of all the wire baobab tree which is made by a wire artist in Hermanus. And the Buddha with cellphone we found somewhere in a so called ‘5 Rand shop’ in South Africa. It’s pure kitsch but somehow it all fits together on the mantelpiece. The ant in the foreground is made by Oliver, a local craftsman from our village but his ants and spiders already drew some attention in this blog.
