Preparing for the exhibition of over 30 pieces of controversial ancient cultural objects of Nigerian origins, Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston, U.S., appears to have set out on the journey of legitimacy, luring the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Abuja, Nigeria, investigation has shown.

  1. I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
    So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
