Mermaid sculpture. Paintings by Haitian artists.

Haitian Art.

At Indigo Arts in Philadelphia one can find amazing works of art by Hatian and African artists.

 They still paint in varying styles and do such imaginative metal sculptures.  Selling work helps artists to recover from the terrible hardship they have encountered after the earthquake.

It is pure joy to see their creativity.

An old Zambian saying(?) from Ranji

If each drop of water were to say: one drop does not make an ocean, there would be no sea.

If each note of music were to say: one note does not make a symphony, there would be no melody

If each word were to say: one word does not make a library,

there would be no book

If each brick were to say: one brick does not make a wall,

there would be no house

If each seed were to say: one seed does not make a field,

there would be no harvest
