Revisiting the British Museum

You strike a woman, you strike a rock

Starting a blog with a South African saying/movement could only mean one thing: It’s Women’s Day in South Africa! A big shout out to everybody there.

I was looking through my old albums and found pictures from when I visited the British Museum. The debate about the ethics of the relics aside – it is a magnificent place. It’s a shame its African History portion is always less full than the European history one which is reflected in the pictures I took. Here are some beautiful pictures I took in British Museum earlier this year of women and the depiction of women throughout history.
