Color MACAW protecting my home
This piece really makes a statement in my courtyard amongst all my flowers. Ive purchased multiple items from this artist. Love the work and the quality.
Beautiful high quality plate, vibrant colors, relief, looks great on the wall. This is the third plate I bought from this artist
Both hummingbirds I purchased are wonderful. Some brief instructions would have been helpful (to select which wings went into which hole in what order), but I checked the photo and acted accordingly and it looks great.

Whimsical Cat-Themed Ceramic Wall Art from Mexico, "Bow Tie Cat"
Wearing a bow tie, a whimsical cat is depicted using colorful designs that resemble patchwork. Mexican artisan Maria Isabel Cruz creates this piece of ceramic wall art in the centuries-old style known as the dry rope technique, in which a wax mixture made of magnesium oxide and fat are applied to the outlines of the image or motif prior to glazing. The wax mixture creates a barrier that keeps the different fill colors in the design separate during firing, before burning off to reveal the blackened ceramic beneath. A length of nylon cord on the back provides for easy hanging.
Artisan Crafted Black Pottery Tealight Candle Holder, "Glowing Owl"
The soft light of a tealight candle is set to illuminate the gorgeous handcrafted artistry of this handsome owl. Its wings detailed with precise openwork, the owl candleholder is crafted by hand by Anakarem. She works with Oaxaca's unique black pottery techniques which, include using a quartz or an obsidian to polish the candleholder to achieve a matte sheen even after firing in an oak wood fueled kiln.
In case of ash residues from being fired in a wood kiln, please wipe with a dry cloth.

Alebrijes are a fairly recent Mexican art form, attributed to Pedro Linares. Unconscious due to illness in 1936, he was presumed near death and yet his dreams were extremely vivid. He tells of a place where all was peaceful and quiet until all of a sudden there appeared a lion with an eagle's head, a rooster with bull's horns and a donkey with butterfly wings. They kept screeching "alebrije, alebrije!" and Pedro began running away. He encountered a man who told him it was not yet his time to be there are and he should continue running towards the exit. In this dream Pedro climbed out of a window and regained consciousness.
