Antigua’s Owl Banks

Antigua's Owl banks

If you keep your savings in one this owl banks, you will not have to make the long lines at the modern banks to withdraw cash. Too bad these owl banks are not for sale; only their replicas are on sale. According to the clerks at La Dulcerí­a de Doña Marí­a Gordillo (candy store), these owls are over hundred years old and they are NOT for sale.

Believe it or not, many people in Guatemala still used this type of piggy-banks made from ceramic. Have you ever used a similar bank?
