A piece of art from Tanzania

A hand painted postcard from Tanzania! A real peace of art. The typical style of painting in Tanzania is Tinga-tinga. The genre is named after its founder, Tanzanian painter Edward Said Tingatinga. This postcard is not in Tinga-tinga style however. It looks similar to the style on the postcard from The Republic of the Congo.
Birds of the world. Part of a set of four stamps issued 1997.The Cactus Wren is a species of wren that is native to the southwestern United States. It nests in cactus plants.

Thx Steve!
