Statues on the Streets

Yesterday, I posted on the street art found on the island or Isla de Cozumel. The Walls Are Speaking Not all of the street art is painted on the walls though. So much of the art is also presented in fun statues that are scattered all over the island as well. No matter what form the street art comes in, it tells the story of life in Cozumel.

A lot of people are unaware that Cozumel also has some Mayan ruins, though most of the Mayan ruins are found on the mainland. The ruins are found in the central part of the island at San Gervasio. Out of all the Mayan ruin sites, San Gervasio is the only one that pays homage to the goddesses rather than to the gods. These are statues honoring the goddess of fertility.

Now for some fun stuff we discovered.

As you can see we all survived our shark attacks.

It’s a good thing there was a turtle rehab center close by. This poor turtle needs some serious help.

Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a big tradition in Mexico, and it is reflective in a lot of the artwork as well. This art style is very popular all throughout Mexico.

Larry found my replacement.

Enjoy the art and enjoy your day. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
