Those little cows are so cute - we only have live ones across the road. Oh, but we did call in at a Farmers supply store today where they had a black and white plastic cow guarding the entrance! Is that type of animal called a Friesland ??
My question about the cemetery was entirely fair if one supposes, as I do, that everyone closely reads all the text in all my threads & takes careful notes. There is a cemetery in the last two photos of reply #11 of this thread. Those pictures were taken only a couple of weeks after Muertos & you can see that the living have already forgotten about it.
Signs here are almost always a trip, especially since there is always some misspelling to decipher, as on the side of the happy cow.
Tod, your cow was bigger than my cows! They could be Friesland cows. I was looking at all of the cow stuff & idly wondering what the black & white cows are called. Then I remembered that I know nothing about cows.

Holstein might have been one of my guesses, from my tiny store of cattle terminology. I don't know if they're dairy or beef cattle here, but my guess is that the owner acquired a whole bunch of plastic black & white cows & the rest is history. Anyway, do we eat cows, or just steers?
You have a good eye. I believe that vase may have been made by Leticia García Blanco, mother of Fernando Perguero. She is the lady who showed us around the larger of the two galleries, and is the loveliest, most gracious person imaginable. I looked up the vase's price for you, if you're curious: £39.73.
I have tried to find a picture of the piece I liked so much, or at least one that was similar, with no luck. This is a frustrating picture, because I know for a fact that it is shown in the photo (4th step down, right back), but the picture is too little & blurry to see my lovely preferred piece. It is a stylized, very attenuated woman rising from a sort of bell-shaped skirt. Her head is a big semi broken beak.
Oh, the link was just to see the families from Atzompa who create ceramics & pottery. Glad you looked at the other stuff, as that is so much what Oaxaca is about ..................... as you'll see when you come here.
