Tin Can Art from Surf Beach
More handcrafted art brought back from my most recent trip to Surf Beach. Surf Beach is a pleasant world where the inhabitants live extremely simple, and recycle almost everything. The objects they hand craft out of discarded tin cans are both used as toys for their young as well as display pieces for their small but neatly designed cottages. They live in a simple substance economy, where the word consumerism has no meaning. They seem to be quite content to have just a few things. And take great pride in displaying their hand skills and creativity in the making of what we might best describe as folk art.
I find myself going back to the island more and more these days with the world the way its is currently.
Living the simple life is becoming more a more appealing to me, as I explore this crazy journey we call life.
