    I find two interesting things:
    1.  She is engaged
    2.  Her necklace has 5 cents coins, one every three three beads but the pattern is broken in two places: in one place it has four beads and in another place it has two coins.

    Long, nicely polished nails, the jicara vase, the beatiful chachal (necklace). That’s the evident, is there anything else?

    The juxtaposition of the long polished nails–very modern–with the huipil–which her ancestors could have worn. Very interesting.

    the design pattern and color combination is exquisite !

    A big old pot of copal. The raw bark kind that is straight off the tree. Nice cultural photo.

    or it could be a pot of dried mushrooms…

    Blinding color variations, which I love.  Are those really 5-centavo coins in the necklace?  I found a 5-centavo 2 years ago while I was walking around La Recoleccion; it was so small, I was amazed to see it on the ground.  I also like the collage of handmade things; the eye goes from the huipil, to the necklace, to the jewelry…all handmade by artists with vastly different skills…down to the gourd filled with (?).  Beautiful foto of beautifully made things.
