Details

Holding an ear of corn in his teeth, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout western Mexico and especially in the state of Colima. Artisans from the Angel Ceron Artisan Association depict the itzcuintli, a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient man. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead.

"Low-maintenance loyal little dog"

I got this dog for my son who wants a dog so strongly, but lives in a small apartment in New York City. This dog is alive! It seems to be offering his love and playfulness with his piece of corn every time we look at it, and its sturdy body shows his complete loyalty. It has become part of our family.

"So thrilled to finally have him"

I have worked in animal rescue for many years, working with troubled dogs, mostly. The instant I saw the little Colima dog, I was reminded of a dear departed little rescued dog, a chubby little dwarf with many problems stemming from previous abuse, who eventually became the most cheerful, resilient little companion. This figure exactly captures his playful presence, from his sturdy little legs to his ample belly. He makes me smile every time I see him. Thanks, Sr. Colon. I will take very good care of him, I promise.

"Wonderful Dog Guide"

I have become infatuated with the different Colima dogs. several years ago I found a pair of dancing dogs in southern Arizona. Then I discovered Novica, and was thrilled with my first pair of dogs from Angel Ceron. This is now my third piece of his work, and enjoy them so much!

"Perfect and Precious"

The Colima Hound is so cute and it was going to be a gift, but I have decided to keep it. Excellent craftsmanship and a great addition to my Mexican decor. Thank you Angel Caron, continue with your excellent work.

"Cool Skull"

Tlaloc is one of my favorite gods, so having a skull with a Tlaloc motif is greatly appreciated. Looks cool in my room, when the light catches the skull it does look like the image on the description.
