made of pepper, curry, honey, biscuit, noodles, cheese, oregano or flour, these artworks are awesome. All have a special character or style. Let them entertain you to be creative with your surrounding. But don’t play with food, instead respect it!

Don’t call us Primitive!
Terms like ‘stone age’ and ‘primitive’ have been used to describe tribal peoples since the colonial era, reinforcing the idea that they have not changed over time and that they are backward.
This idea is both incorrect and very dangerous. It is incorrect because all societies adapt and change, and it is dangerous because it is often used to justify the persecution or forced ‘development’ of tribal peoples. The results are almost always catastrophic: poverty, alcoholism, prostitution, disease and death.
Some governments regularly exploit the false idea that tribal peoples are ‘primitive’ in order to remove them from their land and open it up to outsiders, thereby freeing up access to its natural resources. Often this is done in the name of ‘development’, justified on the grounds that the supposedly primitive tribes are backward and need to ‘catch up’ with the rest of us. This is exactly the same, false argument once used to justify colonialism.
