Masai postcard art

Posted by rod - 18.08.2010

During my summer holiday in Kenya I went to the Masai market in Nairobi (as most tourists do). I bought these postcards depicting the Masai tribe in their daily doings. To make the postcards more authentic and interesting they glued traditional Shuka fabrics to it. Shukas are worn by male Masai warriors of pretty much all ages and are usually red.

Finished here? Then have a look at these.

Nice postcards. Wondering what the Masais are doing with that blob of poo on the bottom card there?

I saw postcards like this when I was in kenya last year. I wanted to buy some but we were rushed onto the bus and I regret never getting the chance. Do you know where these can be bought on the net?

Many thanks,

Jen

Unfortunately I don’t Jen. Maybe on eBay? Or you get someone to buy them for you.
Sorry that I couldn’t help you further.
