2019 Keepsake Ornament

Pulgas vestidas, or dressed fleas, was a Mexican folk tradition dating back to the 18th century in which fleas were clothed and arranged in handmade dioramas to resemble tiny people. The Museum’s pulgas vestidas have been on almost constant display since their addition to the original Mary Buie Museum Collection, cementing them as one of the most beloved staple of our collection.
