(In the same vein, since at this point I'm probably not going to get around to doing a real write-up, here are the Taos pictures. Feel free to ask questions if you're curious about any particular picture.)

Yes, she likes kachinas. The tallest one is new as of this trip; I bought it for her. She said it was too expensive, but it was obviously meant to be hers. My step-dad is "lobo" (wolf) and she's "mariposa" (butterfly) - the kachina is "Butterfly Maiden." It was $970. Kachinas are dolls the Indians gave to their kids, for christ's sake. How can you possibly justify spending $1000 on one? I am such a pathetic turista...

I dunno! ;D I was only there two days/three nights, so I didn't get a chance to actually go into the place. I just thought the sign was amusing. ;]

Kachinas are spirit statuettes, not playthings though they are used to teach children about the spirits. Most signed well-crafted ones go for around the US$500 mark, give or take a few hundred, but the tall ones like the one you got your mum do go into the thousand dollar range. I am interested in a Hermes-Paris scarf with many kachinas on it, it's a steal at US$390 when I think of how much the kachinas cost individually! ^0^)

Here are some I like, um, to look at. *creditcard melts*
