Containers – Photography Challenge

For Thursday Photography Challenge this week the theme is ‘Containers’.


Here are pictures of 2 kinds of containers. Both are open pitchers, without handles depicting different art forms. Both have colorful art on them. They are from different countries. Yes, one of them is from India. The first picture is an art work from Wayanad, Kerala a state in South of India. Can you guess where the second one is from?


Art form of Wayanad, Kerala

This one was an eye catcher. It was arranged among many on a shelf in a shop in Florence. The sales person there told us the art work is a copy of Picasso’s work. I am not sure how true that is, but then I simply had to take a shot.
