"Lovely work of art"

Absolutely wonderful creation ....a perfect example of Mexican art. We've added this work to other examples of Mexican art in our home that we've accumulated over the years. Very talented and clever artistry. A treasure for us.

"Great addition to guest bedroom"

This porcupine alebrije sits on a table in my guest bedroom, along with some other items from Mexico. I live in Guanajuato, Mexico, now, so the decor wouldnt be complete without an alebrije, and this one is bright and fun.
