Details

According to legend, the torito de Pucará, or bull of Pucara, was a bull that was going to be sacrificed to bring rain to the town of Pucara. On its way up the mountain to be sacrificed, the bull resisted, and punctured the side of the mountain with its horn, releasing a flood of water. Peruvian artisan Zoila Davila pays homage to the bull of Pucara with this set of six ornaments. Crafted of ceramic, each colorful bull is carefully painted by hand.

"A llama for Christmas"

Having traveled some in South America and the Andes, I wanted to find some Christmas decorations that reminded me of the beauty and creativity of the region. This little red llama is perfect in every way: Well-made, lovely, and a little whimsical, too.

"Just as cute as picture, maybe cuter."

Been watching for weeks & gave a set as gift. Finally ordered a trio for my own cat collection. They are adorable. Nice size & weight & have cute expressions. Deducted one star because only one kitten can stand on its own on the shelf. The other two fall over, even with sticky tape on the bottoms. I put all three in a shallow woven basket (Novica) with a small decorative box with cat on top (Novica) to provide some bracing. Since then the kittens have remained standing. Very pleased with purchase.
