Anything and everything which is hand sewn, hand painted, hand woven, molded, sculpted or baked, will draw me in. To bring something into existence, using actual hands, creativity and thoughtfulness rather than a mass production line is always more appealing, not to mention healthier for the environment and the soul. Also, more likely than not, the hand made stuff will stand the test of time aging gracefully, slowly revealing their true beauty. Case in point, this incredibly delicate fresco, hand painted a few hundred years ago, weathered and faded, but still around for us to admire. Located in the lobby of the very modern hotel chain, Camino Real, branch of Oaxaca City.
