    Default The arts of Nicaragua & Central America

    I found this map hanging up at a library so snapped a picture of it.

    If you need a clearer picture just let me know, I can't upload the full size because its to big.

    Default I wouldn't mind a copy

    Don't they sell it here? It would be good to have and would boost the artesania industry of Nicaragua. I'm kind of tired of the usual places I go to for artesanias - Masaya mostly or Huembes and now the new place along Catarina highway that sells exactly the same stuff as San Juan de Oriente. I would like to visit some towns known for something that they do (besides Masatepe - a given).

    I'm particularly looking for woven materials (if at all exists here) similar to that in Guatemala or hand-painted cloths and the likes.

    we visited the expica fair this year and they had a handful of stands with arts from other countries. My wife was busy checking out the Guatemalan hand made purses with all of the woven art, she commented that she has not seen anything like this in Nicaragua.

    btw, this map is from the Instituto Nacional de Seguros of Costa Rica. Maybe you can contact them about a copy.
