Art Down South

May 25, 2010
The Riu is full of art work that looks like it belongs in Europe, not Mexico. Take this tapestry below, for example, with Roman ruins in the background. Nothing Mexican about that.
But Teddy appreciated the look. It made her feel like she was far, far away from home, which is the point of a vacation, right?
The fruit still life above looks like something you'd find in a Grecian villa.
This painting above, however, reminded Teddy of something she has seen in her manicure salon. Hmmm, maybe she doesn't feel that far away from home after all.
Teddy found this mural, above, soothing. There's nothing like a monotone canvas to make you say, "Ahhhh."
Even Nibs checked out the art. He said hi to this clay head. The clay head did not say hi back.
