Kantha Animals

On this day after yet another senseless example of humans doing the inhumane, here is some beauty from a part of the world that's often thought of as hopeless and helpless.

Kantha is a form of embroidery that's popular in Bangladesh and the parts of India close to Bangladesh. It's made by women, of course, and so isn't usually valued as art.

These fantastic animals are from an exhibit called A Stitch in Time at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Thanks for the museum up. We often pass though Sheboygen visiting some Wisconsin friends....
