My mom’s orchid is budding again, last year it bloomed for 5 months.
The snow was about gone by Saturday.
Lee and I visited the Catawba Science Center on Sunday to see the Ancient Carolinians exhibit.
They were the Native Americans who came to North Carolina and thrived more than 12,000 years ago. I see fur coat has come a long way.
Lee wanted to see the ancient rocks, and there are many fascinating artifacts found here.
This one made me think of the Lao mortar and pestle.
They did a great job on the animal exhibit. I finally feel comfortable taking indoor photography without using flash. I set my ISO and white balance to auto and this seems to help tremendously.
The Hickory Museum of Art is in the same building. They have a nice exhibit but I do miss NYC museums, I think Lee would like visiting there also. She seems to enjoy herself here.
The Ethiopia king and queen exhibit.
A sumo wrestler carved out of wood. Lee asked me why is he wearing a white diaper? Interesting, I’m not sure. I’m glad she didn’t think he was Santa Clause.
Small town art collection.
I thought the Buddhist art of hell was depressing, this one of Christianity is also disturbing to me. This is the Angel pouring blood on the earth.
Another one that makes you think.
