Just the right size

The little show at Mexic-Arte is not distinguished, but it is interesting. The paintings, firearms, prints, crockery, silver, and embroidery may be seen up close and enjoyed in an intimate way. The handwork on the sword and firearms is beautiful. There's much bullion work, not restored to be shiny. It's too bad that the inscriptions on the paintings and ex-votos aren't translated for those who can't read them; the content is very interesting. The script is without exception very handsome. It's wonderful that the Mexican government sends these little exhibits. The one on calendar art was a great favorite and even had some souvenir post cards.
