9/11 Tribute- Mexico Style! Part 1

At the end of our tour at Museo Del Jugute Mujam (aka Antique Toy Museum Mexico) I stopped in my tracks, made a "What Th-" face then rubbed my eyes as if "No- it COULDN'T be!".
After at least an hour or two of the weird and wacky, comical and cute and kitschy and krazy this construction's fast 180 turn gave me a 'lil whiplash.
What's extra great about the museum is that they not only have the most amazing collection of crap, they often go the extra step and create artist visions with the toys. This tribute to 9/11 is the most jarring example. The planes and towers are all filled with rubber and plastic heroes to show, well, to show that the creators heart was in the right place.
I'm still amazed!
