Why "Ethnographic Museum"?

Also this quilt will be a semicalligraphic one. I am adding excerpts from a book which was printed in 1833. I copied some paragraphs in old German handwriting. It is named "Journey around the world" and contains short descriptions of countries and people.

I might also add some more drawings with the character of "primitive" art -- I used a textile pencil and ironed it.

I like the little beaties ...especially the egg...but all their teeth. Hummm what is it with you and teeth? Sharp teeth.

A very very long time ago I learned to write old German, I do not remember all the letters, only some!
I am glad that you are taking us on another exciting journey - yours and that of the book! I will wait at each of your blog stops to see the next steps and the news, and I shall enjoy!
Thank you so much for sharing your creative and artful adventures dear Eva!
