Mexico Tenoch López, 44, sells jade and obsidian sculptures made by local artisans to tourists at the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon in the ancient city of Teotihuacán, a UNESCO World Heritage site about 30 miles northeast of Mexico City. “Foreigners see my work as art; locals often think they are just knickknacks, and I have troubles selling them,” Lopez says. “Then I lower the price, and the Americans and Europeans tell me that I’m crazy.”
