The Australian Cabinet in wood

 I took this photo in Hanoi in 2005 on my Leica M6 and Ektachrome film.It was in a mouldering antique store and the figures are rather rough but I now realise that the carver had amazing prescience because he has in fact carved the 2015 Australian Government Ministers - the Cabinet.
Australians will immediately recognise the Prime Minister,Tony Abbott,by his signature red speedos and big ears standing in the back row on the right -where else?The childish Education Minister Christopher Pyne is also easy to spot. What a motley wooden mob they are.
