    Last Month I returned to Chile for a few days and again visited Los Dominicos near our old house. I saw that a couple of the craftmen were still very much active in their art.

    Of special interest is the MATCHSTICK carver who makes incredible figure from a wooden match. See the second photo for examples of his work.

    I hope you enjoy the photos and feel free to comment.

    Well I see these photos got lost with all the activity this past weekend. I would really like some comments. The B&W is not very good. Any suggestions?
