The Virgin of Guadalupe is a common icon in Mexico. This particular rendition is a picture composed of tiles.

The eye rests, the imagination runs.

There is so much cultural difference between Mazatlan and the country where I live. Open houses, memorials to young folk in the streets and the artwork that you show us throughout the town. The greatest similarity must be the markets where even the produce on offer would be quite different.
The culture and history of Australia is embryonic, compared with your town. I don't think that I have really ever heard much Spanish spoken here.
Estas fotos son maravillosas, Kate.

Is it on the floor or on a wall? I like the colours.

That is beautiful. I have no talent for drawing or painting, and when I see something like this I realize how much work went into it.
