Dufuna Canoe “Africa’s oldest known boat” (6,000 B.C.) discovered in 1987.
The Dufuna Canoe was discovered near the region of the River Yobe (Nigeria) . Various Radio-Carbon tests conducted in laboratories of reputable Universities in Europe and America indicate that the Canoe is over 8000 years old, thus making it the oldest in Africa and 3rd oldest in the World.
This ranks the Dufuna canoe as the world’s third oldest known dugout. Older than it are the dugouts from Pesse, Netherlands; and Noyen-sur-Seine, France.
One of them pointed at a passing rollerblader and said: “Why don’t you photograph him instead?” Another one answered for me:
“Because he’s not a Hasid with a chihuahua.”
The “Art of DE”, or “Dress Easy” has returned in the upcoming Fall/Winter collection from A. Sauvage. Inspired by the abstract graffiti art and retro 70’s styling of Jean-Michel Basquiat, the designer pays homage to various contemporary influences, while showcasing a mixture of wearable daytime and evening pieces. From full-length to cropped outerwear, trousers in both slim and wide-leg cuts; the collection is also made unique through the subtle use of prints, complex internal detail, and a balance of bold seasonal colors.
