On our travels this spring, I purchased these cards at Stephen F. Austin State Park in Texas. The art is called quilling.
I took this from the web to explain what quilling is:
Quilling is the art of rolled, shaped, and glued paper that results in creating a unified, decorative design. The name quilling is thought to come from the origin of the art; birds’ feathers, or quills, were used to coil the strips of paper around.
They express my love for photography and birding. I would like to frame them so I am looking for opinions on what color frame to use, should I use matting, direction of cards in frame, etc. The cards are about 6 inches square.
Chapungu African Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado
Trails at the Chapungu Park wind through twenty-six acres of wetlands and past more than eighty stone sculptures. The sculptures are handmade by Shona sculptors from stone brought from Zimbabwe. The Shona people have lived in southern Africa for thousands of years and the sculptures are meant to represent their traditional African perspective.
A friend and I spent a lovely day strolling in Chapungu African Sculpture Park, soaking up the sun and enjoying these beautiful African sculptures. We only got to see about one-third of the entire park so we must go back.
Here are a few photos from our visit on September 25, 2013.
