Vurma café in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

The founder of Vurma, a brave and exceptional woman named Neta, once inherited a painting of a flamenco dancing woman from her grandmother. On the reverse side of the painting, somebody had written down a bread recipe. Neta baked that bread and so started her first café, hanging the painting on the wall. The café grew into several cafés, all of them displaying the dancing woman in different shapes. This particular one is based on a photo of a painting that Neta found in a flea market in Paris.

Posada mi casa, a hostel in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico.

 

These type of flags are called 'papel picado' and hang across the streets all over town, especially around festivities. They typically depict religious motives, like Virgin Mary.
 

I made my own motives of things that I associate with San Cristóbal de las Casas: a woman in traditional clothes, the Calla flowers seen everywhere, a marimba, Subcomandante Marcos, an astrological sign from the Mayan calendar, religious sacrifice of animals, La Calavera Catlina and Dia de los Muertos, a Mexican wrestling mask, corn and tortillas, and a Volkswagen Beetle.
