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.
Weekly Photo Challenge – Something Broken
I like the idea of a “pottery garden”
I liked it, too. A lovely way to honour the pieces.
Very interesting how they keep the broken pieces. The stone walls in the second photo are lovely.
A lovely gesture, I thought. And, oh my! The stonework at the site! Enough to make me swoon……. 😉
It’s a cool place. 😎
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!
Hope all is well. 😀
Thanks, I’m doing great and looking forward to the weekend!
