Andrew spent the week before last in Pittsburgh, working on the soon to be open new Schoolhouse Electric showroom and store. He did make time for a little fun and visited the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.That's where he took this photo of a Opuntia wearing katsina doll.
I planned to edit down the descriptor photo (below) to just the section about the prickly pear katsina, but really, isn't the idea of a runner who carries a bag of of hot chilies around his neck, and forces his losing opponents to eat them, rather compelling? Andrew, where's my photo of the red chile pepper katsina?
Not that I don't appreciate the Opuntia wearing doll. Want to learn more about the katsina? Here is a great article.
