downtown art market

You can find anything here, from malachite jewelry:

malachite from D.R.C.

 

to supposed rhinoceros bone miniature busts:

to stuffed pangolins (scaly anteaters) and dwarf freshwater crocodiles:

re-purposed calling card booth

 

and a few close-ups of the pangolin, for eye candy. I LOVE the scales, too bad it was 800 US Dollars as a starting point for bargaining… Also, there is the valid question of what do you do with a stuffed pangolin.
