"Darling cat"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Just returned from Quintana Roo in November. I had been looking for Alebrijes there but they were all too big. Found this darling cat and the size was perfect for my collection. It took awhile to arrive (covid slow downs) but was worth the wait. It was very carefully packed and arrived safely. Will definitely be on the look out for more.

"Beautiful, but..."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Though the sculpture is exquisitely painted, the included tail is bent so far backward over the cats back that it obscures the flower to a significant degree. Me and the friend I purchased it for were bewildered as to how a mistake like this could have been made. I intend to try to get a replacement tail for her. Other than that issue, which is serious to me, this is a lovely creation.

Beautiful, colorful, unique, and incredibly priced for such a time and labor intensive work of art. It is prominently displayed among many other animals in my alebreje menagerie.

The Cat of the Sun is even more beautiful than the photos. He looks terrific next to The Cat of the Moon and Water.
