Ibarra Musuem

I’m not positive but I think the museum was the Cultural Museum. It had a temporary exhibit of life-like statues displaying Afro-Ecuadorian women and children. The detail was incredible and you could almost go up to a statue and start talking to her!

The statues depict various aspects of current life for the women. Look closely and you will see things like eggs balanced on one lady’s head while she talks on her cell phone (it is common to see people talk at the phone instead of holding it up to their ear) or another lady with a child on her back.
