"Ceramic ornaments 'Lord of the Sun'"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These are so happy and bright. They have a wonderful thickness to the ceramic, even slightly raised on the facial features. What looks like a mustache is a birds beak on the face. The decorative motif is on the front/face side only, but with full color on the back. I'm hanging them all over the place, not waiting for Christmas.

Several for me, several to share. I'm decorating my Christmas tree with ornaments from as many different countries as I can get. One of these will always represent Guatemala.

"Beautiful Artistry"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Jose s work is beautiful. The stars are hand painted with meticulous detail. Loving the bright, vibrant colors. I just ordered the seahorse squadron ornaments. There are so many wonderful designs. I will be ordering many ornaments from this artist. Christmas trees, angels, crescent moons, and many more to choose from.

These are even prettier in person. They arrived quickly and very well packaged. My eight-year-old and I had fun unwrapping each one, dazzled by their beauty.

"Very pretty"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I truly enjoy the beauty of these little birds. But, as one other reviewer said, I also would have preferred them to be decorated on both sides, as they must hang on a tree. That said, the workmanship is superb and the painting very precise and beautifully done. I am glad that I got these.

These magical little ceramic hummingbirds are painted so well! Each one is a miniature work of art and has their own character. I will love and treasure them for many years to come, as hummingbirds have a special meaning to me. Thank you, Jose, for your beautiful art!
