Known as el torito de Pucará, this handsome bull is dressed to initiate the branding ceremonies in Pucará (Puno) and ensure the animals will be fertile. It is also believed that the bull guards families and households. Dionisio Rojas preserves this millenary tradition with this ceramic figurine, which he paints with festive detail against a body of cream.

Mr. Rojas, I purchased your ceramic statue Danza de la Tijeras ( scissors dance ). This is a great ceramic piece, detailed hand painting of design and wonderful colors representing the Andes. I am so pleased to have it in my collection.

Dionisio, The Central Church Nativity is beautiful. I have so many nativities and almost didn't buy it, but the picture was just so wonderful, I just had to have it. I am now so very glad I did. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with the world. You are a brilliant artist.
