two from lynn

Lynn B sent both of these cards. This little (3" x 5") wooden one printed with pictographs is from the "Indian Pueblo Cultural Center". No other info given.

This postcard shows a beautiful printed textile from Ghana. It belonged to King Prempeh when he went into exile (1897). It makes me think of Eli Leon, the African-American quilt authority who also had a fine collection of African textiles. There is a definite 'quilt' feel to this textile.
