Photographer's Note

The traditional oxcart is the product of Costa Rica's most famous craft. Dating from the mid-nineteen century ,oxcarts were used to transport coffee beans to central valley over the mountains to Pacific Coast, a journey requaring ten to fifteen days.
Today,in most regions of Costa Rica trucks and trains replaced oxcarts as the main means of transport,the oxcarts remain strong symbols of Costa Rica's rural past,and still feature prominently in parades and in religious and secular celebrations.
