"A very Sophisticate Cat indeed!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Thank you Zeny and Reyna! Another amazing piece - such exquisite details! I love all of the pieces by Zeny and Reyna. I am always looking to see what is new. I bought this to give to a friend of mine. I will say Hello to this cat every time I visit her --- as she has one cat that hides from me....so this cat will take the place of the sophisticated cat who hides. There is magic in every Oaxacan Alebrije! Buy some and discover the magic!
