Tjapa

Back home again.  We went to the Mingei International Museum (of folk art, craft, and design) in Balboa Park.  I keep forgetting how wonderful it is.  My favorite this time was a wall of tjapas from Indonesia, printing blocks made of wood and copper.  Each individual one was a thing of beauty; the array of hundreds was breathtaking.  I wish there had been samples of the printed results, too.  If you visit San Diego, check out the Mingei!
