What a Wonderful World Art Box
The arts of different continents, countries and regions can all teach us much about their particular people’s history, traditions and beliefs. In Africa we look at Ghana and at its long tradition of kente and adinkra cloths; and then to Morocco and its zellij tiles. In Asia we turn to Japan and specifically to the art of sumi-e; and to India with its world-famous Taj Mahal. Finally, to South America where we look at the traditional indigenous arts of Guatemala, and specifically at its ‘worry dolls’; and to Panama with its brightly coloured textile art called molas.
