Otomi woman and her children

I liked to wander through the many markets in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Some of the markets are held on certain days and are outside while others are under cover and operate on a more permanent basis. I saw this native Otomi woman selling her dolls from the steps of the main market in town. I was struck by how closely her clothes matched those of her dolls and her seeming communication with them. This was one of the ways that people supported themselves, making and selling dolls and clothes and jewelry and wood carvings on the street.
