Made in Peru

 One of the interesting things about gem and mineral shows, is the abundance of small and carved stone animals and other figures. Most of these come from places where handiwork is less expensive. I've never been quite sure what the market for these carvings is but it seems like there always a number of vendors selling items such as the one shown in the above photograph. I thought that the photograph was interesting because of the patterns in the colors rather than the subject matter per se.
