Not abstract at all, to me at least

These wooden “Moba” figures from Ghana are said the be abstract male figures. You think? I bet most American women did not realize they have abstract Moba figures in their bedside table drawer.
I’m at the The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Houston has oil. Oil means rich people. Rich people give to museums. So Houston has some pretty outstanding collections.
The piece I want for my apartment is the blue sequenced Buddha from South Korea. The artist was trying to show that we are like fish, the sequence representing scales, moving unnoticed in any significant way. I think it would be an awesome hat rack.
