Something Broken

Some ceramic bits from Canada de la Virgen, a pre-Columbian site 16 km outside of San Miguel de Allende.  According to our guide, so many pieces were found and without the manpower to attempt to re-assemble them, they are placed here in a “pottery garden”.  The garden is laid out in a plan that was based on a design found on one of the pieces.

      A lovely gesture, I thought. And, oh my! The stonework at the site! Enough to make me swoon……. 😉

    Janet, what an interesting place and perfect for the “broken” theme of the challenge this week!
    What a good idea to have them lay out the pieces in a garden….It reminds me of when a plate breaks and you can tile the broken pieces into a flowerpot or something…I can imagine how old these pieces are since they are pre-Colombian…wow, superb shot!
