Gourd

On Manolo's chair Big rattle Cour Royale à Tiébélé A few weeks ago while Margie & Arounna were here we visited a tiny market in a nearby town called Villa de Progreso were I found a vendor that had a basket of gourds for sale. The shape of this one really caught my eye. I painted a triangle pattern a la Bookhou with black acrylic ink inspired by this beautifully decorated dwelling from the village of Tiébélé, located in Burkina Faso.
