Santa Fe Museum of International Folk Art

Two pieces that struck me while visiting the Museum of International Folk Art today:

Mexican paper mache doll sales on a bike

Bicycle Paper Mache Figure Store

I couldn’t get close to this bicycle, so I shot it from above.  Since the Chivas mascot is prominent amongst the paper mache figures, it’s safe to assume that it’s a Mexican shop on wheels, beautiful!

Decorated Head Set

Decorated Head Set

I failed to write down where this head piece is from, I believe either Bolivia or Peru.  A video next to a few of these featured the man who makes them from discarded objects.  During a festival, men wear these things on their heads, there’s an entire armature within it that the performers need to hold, so that the piece stays in place.
