Peder Kolind, founder of Mi Museo in Granada, Nicaragua.

It’s a sad time in Nicaragua as Danish-born Peder Kolind, who established Mi Museo (among his many other projects), passes.

funeral-pots_0Mi Museo, houses Kolind’s pri­vate col­lec­tion of pre-Columbian pot­tery and arti­facts, including fertility icons, jew­el­ery, volup­tuous funeral urns and pots cov­ered with faded paint­ing. Peder Kolind also ran Carita Feliz, a non-profit group that works with under­priv­i­leged chil­dren in Nicaragua.
