Enedina, Wood Masks Vendor, Patzcuaro

Enedina, Wood Masks Vendor, Patzcuaro

During a visit to the city of Patzcuaro, in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, I noticed exquisite handmade shawls and carved wooden masks in a sidewalk display. The vendor was quite friendly and soon we were in conversation about the items she was selling. In addition to the shawls, she had a good sized collection of wooden masks and sculptures, made by her husband. I purchased a few items and Enedina graced me with her sweet but subdued smile.
