Last month I showed you my “woman’s world” collection of representation of women at work from all over the world.
We can’t leave the guys out, so here is my other shelf representing the world of men.
Yes, ‘men have different rules’… thank goodness!!
The photo is one I took as Himself (far right) and his team mates were coming back from a HALO jump. They call this their “Right Stuff” picture.
This is a Native American carving from Alaska. I believe the body is carved from Alaskan jade, the face is fossilized ivory, the hood is a bit of fur, and the drum is a slice of caribou antler.
Another Native American piece from Alaska. This one is carved from a bit of driftwood.
This is a small (very small) Kachina doll. He is Hopi made but not one of the exquisite ceremonial style.
The next two clay sculptures are from Mexico.
This sweet little boy with the bird makes me smile…
… as does this mischievous pair with the burro. One little guy has a cactus spine in his foot.
These are Maasai items. They represent the warrior age-set called the Moran. They are from our visit to Kenya. We sponsor a Maasai boy thru Compassion International and hope that he will finish school before he takes off for his time as Moran.
On one of our US trips, I surprised Himself with a stop in Dyersville, Iowa at the “Field of Dreams”. It was a fun stop. We bought the baseball at one of the gift shops (the baseball field is actually owned by TWO competing families… each with their own gift shop!). We had a game of catch, which is how it got so scuffed up. There really is a corn field there and Himself picked up a few kernels lying on the ground in the outfield.
We’ve had a lot of fun collecting our ladies and gentlemen over our various trips.
