I love the small thin vase available for floral offerings. Are there many of these shrines?

Fresh flowers too. Maybe they are fake flowers?

VP said...

@ Kate - Yes, there are still many of these shrines around Livorno.

@ ciel - The flowers are probably fake.

The flowers, whether fresh or fake, are a nice addition.
