It’s interesting to watch how things turn out when you draw something from memory: yesterday’s Katsina-dolls (left) where drawn from memory, in the metro – I tried to reproduce images of what I had seen that day in the museum.
HEREUNDER are the drawings I made standing in front of the REAL dolls, exhibited behind glass in the Musée du Quai Branly. Wow, very different, don’t you think? I didn’t want to color them, as I haven’t taken notes about the REAL colors. I guess I have to go back to the exhibition and do that!
And these are three dolls I drew two or three days after my visit of the exhibition, letting my mind go free, just taking the Katsina dolls as an inspiration. Funny how more European those look:)
