About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Thanks, ForgottenMan. I bought the sculpture at a show at Isidro’s gallery. I told him to keep it until the end of the show and regrettably, by the time I picked it up, someone had knocked the nose off. At this point, since it has weathered as well from being on the wall ledge outside, I kind of like the look. Like some grecian statue missing a head or an arm or other vital piece. Looks like it has had a life of its own and some stable adventure.

    I have similar terracotta heads like yours, which I got long ago in Mexico and which I liked to put up outside on the trees to place orchids or bromeliads in,,,, but the squirrels seem to think that they should be on the ground and through time knocked every one of them down~!. As you know, such things are very fragile~! My problem is that I can’t replace them without a long drive (and search), but I have kept a couple, even though they show (a lot of) damage, because I really like them~! If you know of a place where I can replace them I would be very happy, but I doubt that they could be shipped. They are not one of a kind but they are handmade and tipic.

    Would you like to see one~? [image: one of the heads I woul like to replace.jpg]

        Oh I did find a pair on ebay but the dumb person posting it thought that it was a precious antique (from England), and wanted far more than they are worth. It was a long time ago but I got mine in Monterrey Mexico and probably paid about $10 each for them which were hand made… These look like they are factory made, probably a rip off from the originals. I will keep looking. One thing sure they were not made in ENGLAND~!

        I did send you a picture of one of them, they are about 8 X 10 and you can see the finger prints inside where the clay was pressed into the molds. I have several more around my place which are glazed, and in better condition which I put lights into and use as night lights, where I park my car, if you are interested I can take pictures. Like you, I collect such things, but really liked these because they were almost perfect for small plants hanging on tree branches. We always went down to Monterrey and Saltillo for about a week at Thanksgiving each year and that is where we would get presents for family for Christmas, always unique from the usual Christmas stuff found here… The ebay ones were too perfect for my taste. I will go outside today and get more pictures but do not know how to post them in the “reply section” of WordPerfect.
