"Exquisite indeed! Amazing details!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Thank you Jesus and Roxana, This turtle is the perfect gift for a friend of mine. I bought this for her to remember three different conversations. I know she will love it and her family will cherish it for many years to come. I was so excited to find one made by Jesus! and at such a low price. I bought it right away. I had some pieces by Jesus and Roxana before their works were available here at Novica....So thank you Novica for bringing more artisans works to Novica for customers to buy. I check often to see what is new....and never hesitate to buy a piece from Oaxaca when I know that one was made just for me (or just for one of my friends/family members....They are wonderful gifts for friends and family).

These little guys couldnt be any cuter. I love the different colors and their diminutive size. The detailing is excellent as well. Many thanks to Jesus and Roxana and of course Novica. I absolutely recommend them!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Roxana has flourished by continuing to use traditional techniques in her alebrije art and continues to pass down her craft to her grandchildren, as her elders had passed down to her.

Roxana has been awarded 2nd place in the 2018 State Wood Carvings Contest as well as the 2015 Grand Master Award for the best Artisan Heritage piece of Mexico.

They financially support all four of their children through school so that they may have better opportunities in their future careers.

Roxana has been able to build her workshop over the years and now gives work to other artisans in her community.

Jesus and Roxana are both incredibly dedicated parents and financially support their four children together.

This artist shows a lot of talent or potential and is in their late teens or twenties.
