"103 Dalmatians…"

I love everything that Jose creates. The adorable animal sets combine masterful craftsmanship with whimsy. This Dalmatian family is the perfect addition to my collection of this artist s works. They brighten up and office or home space, are extremely cute, and always a conversation piece!

"Owl be talking to you!"

These two owls are irresistibly! They look so chatty, dont they?! Just looking at them makes me smile. I am making them my spirit animal! They are right next to another Novica product; a two sided cat! I just got a lovely porcelain Robin bird for my birthday. The five of them are near me on my side table. A round Robin. Thats an old term for people seated around a table. They remind me of parrots bopping around and it makes me laugh. If Jose Arriola reads this, I love the birds so much! Thank you for your artistry.

Best Uses

  • They are ornamental so they don't do much but I could almost swear she winked at me!
