Starry night umbrella星空傘傘の布地に穴を開けて、透明なビニールシートを重ね合わせるのです。夜にこの傘を差すと、ネオンサインや街灯の明かりがこの穴から差し込んで星がキラキラ光るのです。説明しないと伝わらないデザインは弱いでしょうか?MoMAのSky umbrellaのライバル足りえる存在のはずなんだけど…。

The Timbuktu Manuscripts showing both mathematics and astronomy.

The Timbuktu Manuscripts - or Mali Manuscripts - some of which date back to the 13th century, are Arabic and African texts that hark back to the city’s glorious past, when Muslim merchants would trade gold from West Africa to Europe and the Middle East in return for salt and other goods.


The manuscripts cover diverse subjects: mathematics, chemistry, physics, optics, astronomy, medicine, history, geography, Islamic sciences and traditions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), government legislation and treaties, jurisprudence and much more.

Before the European Renaissance, Timbuktu flourished as the greatest academic and commercial center in Africa. Great empires such as Ghana, Mali, and Songhai were proofs of the talents, creativity and ingenuity of the people. The University of Timbuktu produced both Black African scholars and leaders of the highest rank, character and nobility.

Importance

These manuscripts represent a turning point in the history of Africa and its people. The translation and publication will restore self-respect, pride, honor and dignity to the people of Africa and those descended from Africa; it will also obliterate  stereotypical images of primitive savages as true representation of Africa and its civilization.
