Bocas del Toro Caribbean Art
I took this photo of the colorful Caribbean art kiosk, from the Gran Hotel Bahia, where we were staying, right across the main street. My eyes were attracted by all the colors and items displayed there: masks, rugs, tapestries, paintings, scarfs and other wearable items, and everything else that was visible there, including the lady with green socks… 🙂
At a closer look, you can see that the art display also has cooking and sleeping facilities, allowing the art vendor to be present there all the time – I think she was actually living there. But hey, that’s the Caribbean life style and culture.
The Caribbean Art gallery attracts all kinds of art lovers, locals or tourists, and here I snapped a local woman looking at the exhibits. She was just as colorful as the art itself 🙂
Here (below) is the art vendor browsing some newspapers inside the establishment, surrounded by all the items she had for sell. I sneaked for a few seconds into her environment, and quickly snapped the photo…(I didn’t want to disturb her privacy as I knew that just like me, hundreds of other tourists do the same all the time), but I really liked the scene and the Story related to this kiosk.
