For instance, this piece, to the left, is a flat work, framed, assembled of baby bottle nipples, diaphragms and prophylactics is a simple little statement , but very meticulously crafted. suitable for a lobby of a large public building, such as the welfare office, or the archdiocesan headquarters in any over populated metropolis.
local saturday marketeers, take note. outside the cultural center of recoleta, big tourist zone, about 300 craftsfolk display and sell every friday through sunday. these are the leading front of quality folk. they get their spot through the quality of their work and have better traffic and success here than many other craft venues. there has been a law for at least twenty years that street vendors will be licensed and pay taxes. never been enforced, nobody cares, till one day, someone from the city, unannounced, shows up and - show me your license and last years tax receipt, or leave -. this, however is argentina and it took about two hours to have banners strung everywhere and megaphone political folk rallying the troops. it's different, but a way of life. probably all be back to normal in two weeks. not kidding about the quality of the craftwork shown here. absolutely wonderful.
