Hotel Art

I love it when a hotel collects art from local artists and displays it throughout their buildings and grounds. Cristal Ballena is another one of those hotels!

Because of the number of photos, I chose to divide the art into two categories, with the garden art heavily influenced by the local indigenous people, the Boruca tribe, sans their many ceremonial masks they make mainly for tourist sales now (many in the hotel gift shop!). And the indoor art that is a mixture of traditional and contemporary paintings/objects, mostly influenced by nature.

Art is subjective, so draw your own conclusions    🙂
