"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.

"Wow! Such amazing detials!"

I knew as soon as I saw this treasure I had to buy it! -- Painted with the wisdom of turtles (just one symbolism for turtles). Now they also have available a blue bull with fish! So tempting! The painting details and carving of the bull are just incredible. Perfection! I am always in awe when I receive these pieces from Zeny and Reyna. So happy to see that more of their artworks are available here on Novica.
