T is for.../ Macro Monday

T for Tribal
Tribal Voices is the name of a shop in Port Perry. The name above the door is made up of individual carved letters.  I'm not sure why elephants are part of the carving but I am guessing the letters were carved in Indonesia.


Tribal Voices sells a variety of items made in Indonesia such a silver jewellery, teak furniture and home accessories .

Pretty neat. I love the carving in the letters and looked and looked for that darn elephant....finally I found them. At least they aren't pink. MB

That is absolutely beautiful -- would love to see each one enlarged. I tried to enlarge whole thing but it didn't get bigger than posted. . . darn!

Jama said...

Beautiful! it take a good steady hand to carve those lettering, a great work of art!

Jay said...

How lovely to see such beautiful work in a shop sign! SO much nicer than neon, or ugly block lettering!

George said...

That certainly is a beautiful sign. I like all the detail you've captured in your photo.

Amanda said...

The sign is a work of art! Elephants are quite common in Asian jungles (smaller than the African elephant) and that's why they're probably in the sign.
