Bus to Panama Ceramic Sculpture

Rolling down country roads, up and down verdant hills, this bus is as colorful as the handloomed clothing worn by village women. Jose Arriola works in ceramic to create the whimsical image, painting it by hand in white and blue. "In Guatemala, vintage school buses are often transformed into local public transportation," he explains. "We call these 'chicken buses,' because they're usually packed as full as a poultry coop." Baskets of fruits and vegetables are tied to a rack on the top and carried from farms to markets in the larger towns.Dimension - 4.5" H x 5.5" W x 2.8" DWeight - 0.61Color - BlueHand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightlyCentral America
