Midsummer’s day on Friday and the weather finely got the message, though looking out of the window now, the air is thick enough to slice and grey storm clouds are gathering.  Which probably explains the English fascination with tents and gazebos: a place to escape from life and rain, somewhere full of hope and nostalgia that remains a little bit of summer no matter what.

1. They’re brilliantly inspired by the mating dance of male ostriches – (or ‘banjooli’ in Wolof tongue) – who stretch out their wings to show off to the ladies.

3. They make me smile.16916cadac51aa0b7ddafc1815be5d69 802c863a630d64f6a4b4b58a374b8cd3 47365127acae1ed3c1fa6c0626a293f9 e112e9c0eb71e021b99a58a6aff8b154

 

Herkner says, they may be based on birds, but they are human in their perfections and flaws.  Mi piace.
