Here's something fun in honour of the World Cup finals this weekend, from Anthropology.net - "The World Cup, globalization, and cultural representations in the form of soccer balls!"
Togo, Ecuador, and Australia have the most beautiful designs, imho. Which ones do you like (favourite teams aside)? And speaking of teams, I'm rooting for Germany tomorrow, and Italy on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
PS - Have a look at this example of soccer mania and a guide too! Thanks to Leslee for sharing the link in the comments below.
