Hi gang,
I have just looked around my living room walls and think they must be quite unique.

Hanging up on them, or on shelves, I have got;
A Native American Indian bow and arrows.
4 Egyptian statues.
A Native American Indian rug.
4 fossils ranging in age from 75 million to 400 million years old (sand-dollar, little fish, Sharks tooth, and a Trilobite).
A Kallaharee from Africa; its a small Troll-like figure made by Lidi that guards Ostrich's eggs in the Kalahari desert :D

Anybody else got anything interesting or unusual hanging on thier walls?

I understand that you are widely travelled http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

What are some of your more 'wacky' curios?

I have a lot of team pictures and some nice mums. Those are the only things that remotely come across interesting. Sounds like you've got quite a collection! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hi Aza,

I'm not sure I'd call the curios 'wacky' as such (except numerous reports - which qualify as BS). Though I've got two small wooden statues from NW Cameroon which appear to be wearing Y fronts on their heads.

I've got x number of masks and stools from Cameroon and four Ashanti stools, from Ghana, which are symbolically 'important'. Two are 'wisedom knot' stools, one is a 'love' stool and the final one an 'except God' stool. (ie: You've nothing to fear 'except god'.)

I suppose the 'wackiest' things I've got on my travels are 2 dogs (asleep in their little cabin in the garden) and two cats one http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/sleepy.gif on top of the wardrobe and the other on the (no MY) bed!

I've been thinking, - getting curios can be fun though.

Once, going through Ethiopia, we kept on seeing these :cool: guys on horses wearing hats that looked like stetsons (made of straw). They were herdsmen and looked like cowboys, except they were carrying spears not guns. Anyway I set my heart on getting one of the hats! I told the driver this and so we stopped at a market in the next town. I tried a lot of hats on, but only one fitted. I told the driver this, in English, and he said to ignore the hat and leave everything to him!

So he started negotiating with all the vendors in sight, in Amharic, for every hat that was there. As he spent 15 minutes proving what a great negotiator he was, I sat back and watched as some guy came up, tried on a few hats paid the seller and walked off wearing the one hat I wanted!

The driver then turns to me and says 'Well I've beaten the 'bleeps' down, which of these hats do you want!?' To save his face, I didn't have the heart to tell him, I bought one of the remaining hats and I ended up with a hat way too small!

WOW!!! What a great sculpture Isabella.

What country is it in, and do you know the artist by any chance?

Nothing Gonga,

Just don't look in a mirror, or visit a pork butcher, in the near future.
