Have spent the last several days glueing together the beautiful pre-Columbian statue shown above. It broke into about 40 pieces during shipping from my mom's house in Louisiana to New York. UPS most have really been throwing the boxes around.  I've had the statue for over 30 years (thx, Guillermo), but I don't really know much about this mysterious lady with the dog on her lap and the snake coiled around her head. The overall style suggests Nayarit or Colima, Mexico. The eyes, however, are decidedly oriental. I'm just glad it's back together. [NOTE: There were a few small piece left over (in the baking pan to the left). Couldn't figure out where these went.]
