"Amazing Piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When looking at alebrije figures on the Novica website, I was drawn to this piece because of the uniqueness of it having a human face. Upon arrival I was impressed with the detail and design. The carving is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. The detail in the painted design on the body of the ram is gorgeous. The face gives it such a unique character. Such a beautiful piece and I feel lucky to have found it. Teresita Gonzalez is an amazing artists! I have already ordered a second piece from her.
