This Photo of the Week, titled “African Art-ifacts,” was captured while on a walking tour of the Langa township in Cape Town, South Africa, last week. I love the juxtaposition in this image between the traditional African art (masks, sculptures, bowls, etc.) and the modernity of the handcrafted boombox with the Coca-Cola branding, bottle caps and metal wiring. This artsy boombox is definitely the one that got away, as I ran out of Rand while shopping in the township. Womp womp. I’m determined to return for it, among other missions I’d like to complete in the Motherland.
