What a Wonderful World Project Booklet

The arts of different continents and countries can all teach us much about their particular people’s history and beliefs. In this booklet we look at Africa and at the tradition of kente cloths, and zellij tiles. In Asia we turn to the art of sumi-e and to the world-famous Taj Mahal. Finally, in South America we look at Guatemalan ‘worry dolls’ and at the brightly coloured textile art called molas. Main material: Powder paints
