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 Cerón 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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

This statuette is really well made. Love the pot belly and the way he looks up as if howling at the moon. Very realistic. It is a nice weight . Arrived safely and sooner than anticipated. Love Novica and the fine artisan wares it brings to us.

"Unique, beautiful ceramic plaque"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was looking for something special for my patio. I needed it to be outdoor. This is perfect! It arrived before i thought it would by at least a week. I am in canada so everything takes longer. I am trying to be patient to hang it up as we are just in first bit of spring. The detail, the quality is there. I couldnt have asked for a better addition to my new patio.
