Earrings decorated with images of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez covered in plastic 

Earrings decorated with images of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez covered in plastic wrappers are for sale on the sidelines of a rally by Chavez supporters in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. Filling the void of Chavez's 6-week absence following a fourth surgery in Cuba, the government has been churning out a steady stream of emotional images, slogans and Chavez sound bites that appear poised to solidify Chavez's legacy as a messianic savior of the poor.
