This is a gold frog in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum. One of the things that amazed me about the museum's collection, in addition to the skill and artistry of those who created the items, was how the artists were inspired by the animals of Costa Rica.
People come to Costa Rica today because of the popularity of ecotourism and the wildlife and natural beauty of Costa Rica. The pre-Columbian cultures also admired the wildlife.
This week we have photos of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
