"Gratitude"

It was moving to read in Zeny and Reynas Artist Statement of their devotion to nature and lifes essential elements and how this informs and nourishes their expression of Zapotec culture. I am deeply grateful for this spirit dog, this Xoloescincle, that has padded into my life! It really invites me, I feel, to open my eyes and heart with a sense of wonder, like a child, to the goodness and magic that is actually present in this world. The ability to transmit that is a great gift and transcends any border. Such artistry is very special, I feel. Thank you!

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
