When Praxiteles meets Thami of Kwamashu from Lesley in South Africa

You know it is going to be something great inside when you see those South African stamps on the envelope!

And Lesley honored me by sending a vintage postcard of the classical sculpture of Hermes by Praxiteles,which is safe in the archaeological museum at Ancient Olympia...and which we can visit next Spring , when we all meet at Ancient Corinth to search for the Lost Landolozi, right?

Most beautiful, however, is the drawing that Lesley did on the reverse side of "Hermes"*:

Hmmm? Special indeed! I have now a new addition to a great collection of drawings by Lesley....I may have to make a boekie for them, or some type of display. Strong, expressive drawings...thank you  so much, Lesley!

*(figures are in reclining positions both...as they were on-the-floor during Greek siesta time;-)

Thank you, thank you, Lesley. The posrcard of Hermes is an oldie and really a joy to see, truly appreciate "anything" Greek you fund. And I agree here : both hot bodies!

I thought Hermes and Thami had a lot in common (hot bodies!) Anything Greek that I see is now a candidate for mail art for you..... more to come!
