Intricately designed and painted. Orange overwhelms the yellow a bit too much than shown in the photos.

I loved the first one so much, I bought another as a gift for a friend. It reminds me of the beauties of nature, regardless how prickly in seems at times.

These porcupines are beautiful. They were beautifully wrapped. These made awesome gifts. I bought four of these for student acupuncturist that I am seeing for some issues I am having. They are all gracious and compassionate and thought this would be a nice display for their future office. All four of them just loved them. Your art work is just beautiful.
