Gave this as a rememberance gift and my sister loved it. I have bought several different birds as gifts and a couple for myself because they are very realistic, very well made. Mauricio pays very close attention to detail. I have not been disappointed.

Just returned from Quintana Roo in November. I had been looking for Alebrijes there but they were all too big. Found this darling cat and the size was perfect for my collection. It took awhile to arrive (covid slow downs) but was worth the wait. It was very carefully packed and arrived safely. Will definitely be on the look out for more.
This it was a gift for a relative who collects elephants. She said the elephant was very well-made and you can tell it was an elephant made in India by how it looks. She said it was a fun addition to her collection.

Black and Grey Beaded Skull Figurine with Huichol Symbols, "Our Children"
The diamond-shaped talismans are known as the "eyes of God" come together to form a one of the guardian stars that accompany the shaman. Children's faces peek out around it. "These are our children who are no longer with us. They can be found in the eye of God," Higinio Hernandez Carrillo confides. — a six-sided peyote cactus bud of — appears on the forehead of this intricately beaded skull. Jicuri is revered for its curative properties and its ability to enlighten the one who partakes of it. Teruka, the scorpion, scuttles around the base. He is the guardian of the corn and must receive gifts before the harvest. The talented artisan coats the image with beeswax and places the tiny seed beads one by one to create the symbols of his people.
Do not expose this piece to direct heat or light, as it could soften the wax adhesive and thus loosen the beads.
Balinese Signed Hand-Carved Sleeping Black Cat Sculpture, "Black Catnap"
Here to steal your heart is this adorable cat sculpture by Nengah Sudarsana. The sweet black kitty catches a catnap, one paw tucked under its chin. Carved from suar wood and painted by hand, the sculpture is ready to display on the edge of a shelf or table.
Santa Penguin Hand Painted Bamboo Root Statuette, "Penguin Santa"
Perhaps if Santa hailed from the South Pole, he would take the form of a penguin. This jolly wannabe has donned the colors and spirit of the season in this naturally shaped bamboo root and acacia wood figure. Hand-painted details--right down to his belt buckle--make for a convincing imposter, while the red hat and polyester "fur" trim complete the ensemble.
