We are absolutely delighted to publish Benamon Tame’s latest article (#36) to his PictureBook Column with us.
PictureBook is full of creativity and imagery in words and in pictures. It is a complete joy to read, view and publish – thank you Benamon.
The concept behind the PictureBook column is not just about capturing stories but creating them, the journey behind and the image we present. PictureBook draws on Images selected from Benamon’s own story series and also looks at the work of the other story tellers within the community’.

There several scenes of archery and boar hunting and horse riding which on close inspection all show a single animal in accompaniment in the shape of a Black Cat”.
