Purhépecha Woman "Marikua"

We brought Marikua (which means woman in Purhépecha) home to grace our garden at La Jacaranda. Driving from Pátzcuaro, just before one enters the pueblo of Tzintzuntzan there are at least a thousand carved stone statues of diverse size and conception offered for sale by artisans.
Purhépecha women fish for carp in Lake Pátzcuaro. This successful catch is at Uranden, which we visited by canoe.
