We've been out selling again, thanks to the fabulous variety of products i buy from Central America there is always something new to sell. These Tree's of Life are for sale at Ballyhoo Art, Ryrie st, Geelong. 03 5222 4532
The Tree of Life depicts Adam and Eve and their connection to Creation and the Earth by the representation of them on a growing tree, surrounded by a Serpent, Flowers and Doves. They are candle holders. Lovely for any home.

Which town are you from?

In a lot of the countries i buy from there is a code, its between the women and men of a village, i think its also unwritten, its like a trend but becomes a fashion.  I am pretty sure there are no rules, just colours, designs and your own interpretation.
It's the clothing the people wear and it marks them, it identifies them, often people express themselves by embroidering larger, more colourful designs and embellish themselves with the most beautiful belts, beads, head-dress's its what we lllooovvveee!!! about our job, interpreting the towns, appreciating the garments and watching a proud wearer be a representative of their village.
Walking Art, a feast for anyones eyesxxxxxxxx
This couple have for decades been the distributors and custodians of this towns art, they have a museum and sweat lodge, and are keen to nurture their culture for as long as they can, they are from Ochuc. Chiapas, Mexico.

What Beautiful Finger Nails You Have!

This weekend I had a visitor on my favourite Featherstone chair, the comfy chair that gets loaded with all my folded fabrics, my divine wares, maybe its because its dry inside? away from all the Tropical Rain?
At first i was scared............then i got my nerve and decided it was time to relocate without too much fuss, an esky and a piece of cardboard had this fella off my Guatemalan Bead Spread in no time, I'm still not sure what type of Lizard he was, beautiful for sure with the longest finger nails i have ever seen!!
