What a woman puts her hand to...things made by or used by women is the theme. The little street vendor is camped outside the public market next to the market shrine, selling her wares, sheltered under it's portico.
I call these story boxes. This is my 3rd one. The first 2 are sold. These first 3 are housed in handmade mason's boxes. The masons and tilesetters of Mexico use these to work small batches of plaster or tile mortar. I put feet on them and used a picture framing wire system on the back so they can be displayed either sitting or hanging. You can see the worn wood of the front edge, from the repeated washing of the tool at day's end. After the boxes are too worn to use, they'll just make a new one. In Mexico, most buildings are of masonry, so there is alot of form-wood handy. I love the saw-horses (burros) and other useful things they just whip up! In my role of tile designer for our custom homes in Puerto Peñasco, I had easy access to these boxes and since my husband enjoys his Cerveza Victoria, I have access to lots of yellow bottle-caps as well! ¡¡¡Ahhh...Victoria!!!
