This is as nice as it looks online. It is very well done and looks as if it had been made in Classic culture times.

"Ancient Dogs"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought three of these Aztec dog statues. All very good quality and I love them. My guests have always made wonderful comments. The little ones I have in my living room in different locations. My favorite is a larger dog laying on its belly s which is on my glass table in my covered patio.

"love this little pup"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This statuette is really well made. Love the pot belly and the way he looks up as if howling at the moon. Very realistic. It is a nice weight . Arrived safely and sooner than anticipated. Love Novica and the fine artisan wares it brings to us.
