“Real Mexican Art?” – Todos Santos, Mexico
I found this gem while visiting Hotel California, in Todos Santos, a large town on the Baja Peninsula.While walking with my family, I was attracted to this door being framed by the two round windows, an unusual design. So, I made a quick image and then hurried to catch up with the group.
It was not till I was reviewing the image that I noticed the details of the sign above the door. It made me laugh. Honesty in advertising? I’m not sure, but after a few days of touring the gift shops and having every merchant tell me they had the best price around, that it was all authentic art, made by local villagers, or an isolated tribe from the surrounding mountains, this was kind of refreshing.
Too bad the door was locked, it would be interesting to see what they are actually selling, if anything.
