Folk-art goddess?

Offhand, I'd guess this is an attempt at a mother-goddess figure, likely one with Aztec roots, quite possibly Tonantzin.

Give The Lady? A Big Hand! Please!

It's OK, she's ARMLESS. She wouldn't, and couldn't hurt a fly in her present condition.

I think that this is a statue of a HAND Maiden.

I think they clean this with ARM-OR All.

Ok that's it.

Art Class?

Does this statue still stand? Like maybe a headstone, or something? This is the worst example of art I could ever wish to imagine. I thought our "modern art" was bad.
