"Brings a smile to my face!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this Zapotec Coyote! He is colorful and cheerful. The painting on this sculpture is intricate and fascinating. The card explained that these designs refer to the sun, water, and life! This sculpture now has a place on my desk, and it brings a smile to my face every time I look at it! I want to thank the artists-they created not only beautiful art, but joy as well!

I bought this sweet, little "blue coyote" for my husband when he named his business "Blue Coyote Software, LLC." He was so thrilled and keeps it prominently displayed in his office. It was a real hit!

"Stunning addition to collection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have been looking for unique carved and painted dogs/coyotes to add to my collection. This pup is exquisite, beautifully painted and symbolic. It was packaged so that no harm could come to this piece of art--so firmly wrapped and protected that it took me a while to get him out! So happy I found this.

"Wonderful coyote"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Another great piece of sculpture and painting of the artists interpretation of a coyote! I love collecting the smaller pieces, which are both precious and affordable. This coyote is my largest (yet by no means large) of my group so far. So much personality, color and detail! Love it!

"Appreciation"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Zapotec Coyote is so delightful! I love its spirited presence in my home; I love the play of glyphs, of hearts & flowers, the little lizards darting across it. Its vivid coloring suits it perfectly. It has been amusing to place it here or there in my home: the magical surprise of it, greeting you. At the moment, Zapotec Coyote is nestled beside the work of Borges on my bookshelf. With gratitude & appreciation to the gifted artisans, Zeny and Reyna!
