Just what I wanted
This is a beautiful cuff - heavy/medium weight silver, both sturdy and comfortable. I got this for my husbands birthday - we are guardians for 2 huskies who look just like the wolves on the bracelet. Truly a perfect gift for him.

This lovely blanket is even better than I hoped. The quality is exceptional, it is plenty big to cover our king sized bed and it brightens up the room perfectly. Carmen Ruiz is such a talented artist! Thank you, Carmen and Novica.

Hand Made Sun and Moon Steel Wall Art from Mexico, "Beloved Sun"$204.99

12-inch Hand Carved and Painted Alebrije Fish Sculpture, "Zapotec Fish"$329.99
A rotund fish with big eyes swims sinuously in cool rivers. Colorful motifs from Zapotec art and ancient temples cover the body and fins. By Manuel Cruz, this is a beautiful example of Mexico's art. The image is carved by hand of copal wood in the style of Oaxaca and meticulously painted by hand with tiny brushes. The finer details are created using a maguey thorn instead of a brush.
The alebrije tradition originated with Mexico City artisan Pedro Linares (1906-1992). When he was 30, he became ill and fell into a coma. While he was unconscious, he dreamed he was caught between the land of the living and the dead, a place populated with creatures whose body parts belonged to different animals. The beings repeatedly cried, "Alebrije!" When he was well, Linares recreated these fanciful figures in papier mache. His work became famous and inspired artisans in the state of Oaxaca, who began crafting alebrijes of wood.
The wood branch dictates the final form, thus size and shapes can vary slightly. Thus, each alebrije is an authentic work of Mexican folk art.
