Truly a fixture on the Plaza de
Quiroga in Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, the one and only Enedina
can be found with her wares daily, enjoying the view of life passing by
on the sidewalk. One would never know from this solemn photo, but she
is one of the most jolly and joyful folk artists in Mexico, and a philosopher
as well. After raising 14 children, she can say and do as she pleases!
Tocuaro, only minutes away on Lake Pátzcuaro, is home to Enedina
and other well-known mask carvers.
