Sloths, or bradypus are strange animals living most of their life hanging upside down. Very slow in their movements, they are called paresseux in french, perezoso in Spanish, which both mean lazy.

“Honey, have you seen my shoes?”, Rue Dombasle, Paris.
Times Square, Mexico city.
Made in Italy. San Gemignano, Tuscany. Coin, coin.
Tombstone, Sienna. Around Botticelli’s time. Notice the long flowing hair, and the “cornucopia of abundance”. Wonder what the sail allegory means…
