AFRICA INSPIRED, Tribal Handbags

Recent trip to Museum of World Cultures (http://museuculturesmon.bcn.cat/en) has bombarded me with primal art impressions and all sorts of totems and masks which, at some point, have been identified as Deities or Saints in tribal cultures. Here are some photos from the museum and handbags inspired by what I saw.
