San Martin Tilcajete

I love these brightly painted wooden figures. The creativity and painstaking detail are almost unimaginable. From the first coat of paint to the saleslady on the showroom floor, I was enchanted. Only lack of space kept me from bringing back sacks of the stuff. Well, there were two other considerations: what would I do with it when I got it home and, of course, the price. I only bought one piece, a small box. It's a treasure!
