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.

"Sweet little bulls indeed!"

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.

  • Beautiful Christmas tree ornaments or just hanging anywhere

"This is an adorable nativity scene!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

As I unwrapped each of these six adorable ceramic figures I kept saying oh, this is so cute! The ceramic figures are cute and adorable, and I am so glad I purchased this nativity scene from this artisan. I love the Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus and the 3 animals that are there to adore him (a white sheep, brown deer and black and white spotted cow). The ceramic pieces are very well made and painted extremely well. I just cant tell you how much I love this In the Stable nativity scene and I believe you will enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you to Mrs. Davila for creating this and an early Merry Christmas to her!
