"Wonderful addition to my art collection."

This is an unusual and striking piece. Love the historic significance of it, as well as his fierce countenance. Displays perfectly when back-lighted. I am proud to help support Angel Ceron.

"Wonderful Dog Guide"

I have become infatuated with the different Colima dogs. several years ago I found a pair of dancing dogs in southern Arizona. Then I discovered Novica, and was thrilled with my first pair of dogs from Angel Ceron. This is now my third piece of his work, and enjoy them so much!

The Colima Hound is so cute and it was going to be a gift, but I have decided to keep it. Excellent craftsmanship and a great addition to my Mexican decor. Thank you Angel Caron, continue with your excellent work.

"Cool Skull"

Tlaloc is one of my favorite gods, so having a skull with a Tlaloc motif is greatly appreciated. Looks cool in my room, when the light catches the skull it does look like the image on the description.
