Two Wonderful Museum Exhibits

Kongo:  Power and Majesty

This exhibit just opened at the Met and the sculptures are very powerful.  I was attracted to the Mothers and Child and the one I chose to sketch was one of 4 created by the Master of Kasadi.

The Glittering World of the Yazzi Family:  The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in New York has a fantastic special exhibit of Navajo Jewelry created by the Yazzi Family.  I don't especially like silver and turquoise Indian jewelry, but Turquoise and Gold or Coral is gorgeous.
