We were stumbling around the small towns off Mexico’s Oaxacan coast when we ran into a small, entrepreneurial bunch who were selling lovely wooden folk art. There was a (thankful) breeze and the birds were floating over the front porch of their small store-hut.
Your purchase of a folk-art bird also brings sustenance to many who make them by hand in a rehabilitation facility called Pina Palmera in Zipolite, Mexico. Pina Palmera is an educational and rehabilitation centre for disabled youth and adults from rural communities of the Sierra Madre in Oaxaca state.
Zocalo’s brightly painted wooden birds will catch the breeze off your balcony or porch. They fly with whimsy when the wind catches their wings. They delight and inspire! Add a little colour to your world, and give someone a lift today. $45.
