Art...or something like it.

In Athens, many stores sell statuettes and souvenirs of ancient themes. Every Athenian finds them to be of bad taste but these stores are there for decades so they make money.

Would you buy something like this? What does your own city sell that you find ridiculous but tourists love it?

If I ever get to visit Athens, I think I might buy a tiny one to bring home. Yes, we have stores with junk made of sheep skin and possum fur. Yuck.
