A perfect big blue Pucara Bull!”

First, this Pucara Bull looks huge; so much bigger and taller than I expected. He is very, very nicely painted in a lovely color of blue and I really will enjoy owning a fabled Pucara Bull. I especially like the manner in which Mr. Rojas has painted it. So many of the other Pucara Bulls are over-painted and garish. This Bull is perfect, very big and dignified. Well done Mr. Rojas, and thank you.

Lovely recreation of The Last Supper”

I love Peruvian ceramic work. Generally I prefer the limited palette of earth tones central to Peruvian ceramics but Dionisio Rojas has used beautiful and sophisticated colors to enhance this piece.

Meaningful Nativity”

I love this Nativity created by Dionisio Rojas. The painting of each character is beautifully detailed. Instead of Peace Nativity, I call mine, In the Hands of God. The pictures do not capture how truly wonderful it looks.

Beautiful gift!”

I loved this nativity as soon as I saw it, but I hesitated to buy it for myself because I already had a nativity that I liked a lot. The next year, my husband bought it for me as a gift, and I am so glad. Its exquisite! The picture doesnt even do it justice. I will treasure it always.
