Photographer's Note

There is a small museum in Swakopmund with many interesting things like a Portuguese cannon from the time they arrived in the seashore of Namibia. Between the many objects you can find there, I decided to post an image of these adorned shells (I guess they are from Namaqua tradition, but I am not sure).

Há um pequeno museu em Swakopmund com muitas peças curiosas, entre elas um canhão português da época do descobrimento da Namíbia. Dentre as peças do museu escolhi mostrar estas conchas adornadas, creio que são da tradição Namaqua, mas não tenho muita certeza.
