Practiced in Mexico for well over a century, the art of dressing fleas in tiny costumes has now almost entirely disappeared. This image shows a pair of fleas dressed in tiny male and female costumes; other examples are grouped into scenes like weddings. This form of Mexican artwork is a traditional artform that is entirely unique to Mexico. If you have any additional information regarding dressing fleas please leave a comment, I would love to hear your incite.
