Peñafrancia Grey Marble Artisan

The pictures were taken during the last day of Peñafrancia Festival.  During the fiesta, you will see loads of artisans from all over Naga City and from other parts of Bicol selling their crafts. Fiesta’s is their busiest time.

I got myself a mortar & pestle and used it as a paper weight in my office to hold down my receipts. Not really a cook so I used it as an ornament. I think it’s pretty.
