Unbelievably sweet and friendly docent who did not speak a word of English, but was adorable. This museum is a gem. It was my only not-to-miss destination and I was correct in that assumption.
Finely crafted textiles, embroidery, weaving, basketry and hats, carvings, masks, and ceramics of every style, including a large and breathtaking exhibit of Majolica. There was a fantastic documentary in that room that showed the artists working literally from a pile of mud on the floor. After having seen workers doing same on side of a building the day before, it was very impressive to see the fine results.
Folk art doesn't always have the power or social commentary of other types of art, but I love to see how charmingly everyday life is captured in a scene of terra cotta "dolls", for example, at a funeral.
