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.

I am keeping two of these fine little bulls - and giving the rest away as gifts. These are so adorable, it is hard to part with them. The recipients enjoy getting the story about the bull, too.

"These pyramids are really beautiful!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love these pyramids! They are painted really beautifully on every side; you can tell Mrs. Davila worked very patiently on the painting. As I said, they are really beautiful. They would also make very beautiful Christmas presents. As I cannot give the ones I got away, I may be ordering more for this purpose.
