"My little spirit cat"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I call him Chaney in honor of my favorite cat who passed away years ago. This little guy is so sweet and I see him all day as he sits next to my computer. The carving, paint job and design are wonderful though mine isnt shiny so the colors arent as bright as in the photo. It came well padded and in one piece. Im now buying the little green porcupine.

"This alebrije is very colorful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a very colorful and detailed alebrije. I should say, however, that it is so much smaller than I expected, even though I thought I read the size description. It is too small to really enjoy the colors and the figure. So please be aware of its size.
