I liked the shaped pears. The Hmongs in Lao do this with some sort of fruit and theirs look like a standing buddha. I see them for sale at all the Hmong markets and they are usually expensive. They are animists and they use them in their traditional ceremonies.

Well last time I was there several months ago they just said expensive........I asked how expensive and they tried to tell me $20. haha. I bet they are less than $5, but they maybe don't want to sell it to a foreigner because it's for their ceremonies. I don't know what kind of fruit or veg it is but they are always dried and sold alongside a bunch of other strange stuff they use. I'll take a photo when I'm back to that market in the next couple weeks.
