About prints and how I like them

I don't know why but I am more and more attracted by figurative prints on fabrics or objects, human as well as animals. I cannot explain this thirst for the concrete and I rarely hesitate when something beautiful and afordable comes to my attention. I have shawls with zebras and elephants, blouses with street scenes in France (the Eiffel tower is depicted) and now, these few objects from a recent travel.

This is a bag I bought in Colombia and it uses the work of a native artist.

His name is Grau and the company that ade the bag, Mario Hernandez, uses several of his painting as background.

This pendant with monkeys is a copy of the pre-colombian art, which originally is made of  gold (not my pendant). I visited the Museo de Oro in Bogota and I was totally seduced by the craftmanship of the old inhabitants. No wonder the Spaniards thought that they had reached Eldorado.

This brooch is more abstract but still it reminds a human figure.

And lastly, this beautiful Mexican shawl in silk with scenes from a Mexican celebration.
