Proyecto de cuero de pescado en Amazonas

Bookmark and Share


SPAET en cooperación con Tanto Mejor (TM) prepara una ampliación del proyecto. TM fue fundada en 1999 para el apoyo de artesanías artísticas en Boyacá. Pronto fueron sobrepasadas las posibilidades personales (y financieras). TM cooperó con Pueblo de Yaguas por Leticia, quienes confeccionaban las “ropas”. SPAET en Ch. tiene que organizar mejores posibilidades de contacto para otra cooperación al proyecto de cuero de pescado en el Amazonas.


Como apoyo ofreció SPAETel DGFK para la organización correspondiente para 2017. Esto fue posible a través de Profesor Doctor Pintsch con motivo de su estadía en Chiquinquira para el proyecto CNC y artesanías artísticas. En este proyecto se trata de productos vendibles por TM.

Fish leather project in the Amazon


SPAET in cooperation with Tanto Mejor (TM) is preparing a project expansion. TM was founded in 1999 for local handicraft support in Boyaca. Soon, the human (and financial) possibilities were exhausted. TM cooperated with Puebla de Yaguas at Leticia, where the ropas were made. SPAET has better contact possibilities for a further project cooperation in the Amazon regarding fish leather. For support, SPAET has requested DGFK to prepare the program for 2017.


This became possible during the stay of Prof Dr Pintsch in Chiquinquira for the Project CNC and Handicraft. This project deals with marketable products for Tanto Mejor.

El destino de los muiscas:Primigenio mandamiento de la Madre Abuela Bagüe

Bookmark and Share

“Ya están mis hijos quienes se encargarán de la gigantesca empresa de construir el universo”- decía como viento modulante interior en su pensamiento la sabia Madre Abuela Bagüe. –“Ahora corresponde alimentarlos y darle a cada uno su destino para que de esta manera se cumplan todos los mandatos que se han dispuesto desde sasquyhynuca, es decir, el tiempo del comienzo de todo o antes de nada”- Así pensaba Bagüe, mientras iba preparando la “osca”, la sagrada bebida de los dioses que constaba de una bebida hecha con granos de maíz, dorados como la luz del sol y unas cuantas gotitas del zumo del fruto del árbol de borrachero que con mucho esmero, la madre abuela cuidaba frente a la ventana de su casa de caracol, en el fondo de la Oscuridad;allí cada día se extasiaba con la belleza de las flores de este misterioso arbusto que contenía en sus jugos la luz del conocimiento, la sabiduría para entender todos los grandes eventos que estaban cerca de suceder.

Bagüe permanecía en la piedra grande, base de su casa y sus amados hijos jugaban en su derredor. Eran como viento arremolinado, como aleteos de negras aves invisibles, como premonición de grandes acciones porvenir. Y jugaban, jugaban con la danza; con alegría danzaban al son de la flauta y el tambor que tocaba el hermano “Fo” que desde un comienzo fue el espíritu y el amo de la música y la danza.

Analog and digital action

Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch / SES, Ricardo Coslez / Tanto Mejor

Times of transformation are times of change and change always comes.

In the present time, change is brought about through the use of and effects of Information and Communication. At the same time, the factor is ignored, although it is there all the time.

The manufacturing of a unique piece requires time and demands Initiative, Creativity and Innovation. Terms, which are precondition in the analog as well as in the digital world. The big danger here is of acting as Either-Or, because it is more sensible to act as This-As well as this. Otherwise the ground reality goes lost and the digital reality is considered the only reality. The production of errors is increased exponentially. These again lead to Pseudo-Solutions, which contain new faults!

The idea behind the Dolls of the World took birth in Pakistan when Thatta Kedona - a self help project - started in small Punjab village Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka in Pakistan and NGO Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama (AFA) was registered in 1999. Next year (2015), the Project is celebrating its silver Jubilee.


AFA has grown multidimensional over time. Now AFA cooperates with six local NGOs all over Pakistan from Karachi to Hunza and in many countries around the globe. In Pakistan, the project also enjoys cooperation of prestigious educational institutions – Bahaud Din Zakriya University Multan, Indus Valley School for Art and Architecture, Karachi, School of Visual Art, Lahore, Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi – interested in heritage, culture and or agriculture.


Women from other countries heard about the success of the project in Pakistan through DGFK newsletters and other media channels as well as through word of mouth (mostly from diplomatic corps housewives) and invited Dr. Senta Siller - Mother of Dolls - to start similar projects in their countries. In Cameroon, three independent NGOs -- Akwatinnighah (1998), Akaanhong (2002) and Center of Appropriate Technology in (2001) are working where over 90 persons are involved in handicrafts and appropriate technology with support from Bamenda University of Science Technology, Bamenda.

Tanto Mejor Por La Paz, Saboya is working in Colombia in cooperation with four independent local NGOs or similar organizations since 1999. Over 60 persons are busy in handicraft with collaboration from Dept of Environment Technology National University in Bogate and AFA.


Besides, AFA has networked with International Dolls Museum Flateyri and University of Reykjavik in Iceland and Benaki Museum Greece. In UAE-Dubai, AFA is participating in Global Village Expo every year since 2001. In Germany, besides most German senior experts coming to Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka, Dolls of the World project has individual and collective support.
