Indian Symbols and their meaning

 A very cool birthday suprise card from dear Adobe :) It was in my wislist and Carol sent this to me.Thank you very much. I LOVE IT :) .

 Native Americans used symbols to communicate  their thoughts ,expressions and beliefs.Each symbol has distinctive characteristics and is a unique representation of a sentence,situation or incident.Many of these symbols are incorporated in craft and jewelry desings.


Kenya is a country in East Africa,that lies on equator. With the Indian Ocean  to its south-east, it is bordered by Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, South Sudan to the north-west, Ethiopia to the north and Somalia to the north-east. Kenya has a land area of 580,000 km2 and a population of nearly 41 million,representing 42 different peoples and cultures. The country is named after Mount Kenya, a significant landmark and second among  Africa´s highest mountain peaks. Kenya's capital and largest city is Nairobi.
  Kenya has a warm and humid climate along its coastline on the Indian Ocean, which changes to wildlife-rich savannah grasslands moving inland towards the capital. Nairobi has a cool climate that gets colder approaching Mount Kenya, which has three permanently snow-capped peaks. The warm and humid tropical climate reappears further inland towards lake Victoria, before giving way to temperate forested and hilly areas in the western region. The North Eastern regions along the border with Somalia and Ethiopia are arid and semi-arid areas with near-desert landscapes. Lake Victoria, the world's second largest fresh-water lake (after Lake Superior in the US and Canada) and the world's largesttropical lake, is situated to the southwest and is shared with Uganda and Tanzania. Kenya is famous for its safaris and diverse world-famous wildlife reserves such as Tsavo National Park, the Maasai Mara, Nakuru National Park, and Aberdares National Park .

Kristinehamn, Sweden

Kristinehamn is situated by the shores of lake Vänern. To be precise, it is situated where the small rivers Varnan and Löt drain into the lake.
It has a harbour and is a railroad and road transportation center.
Nearby towns include Karlskoga and Karlstad and is located exactly in the middle of Oslo , Stockholm and Gothenburg with 250 km to each of them.

  By the shores of lake Vänern stands this 15 meter high Pablo Picasso  statue since 1965. The statue was concipated from Picasso, but built and inaugurated without him visiting the construction site. Picasso never visited Kristinehamn. Its 15 meters make it the tallest Picasso Sculpture in the world.You can see the statue on card aslo.
