Gift for Dia de los Muertos
I bought this as a rememberance for some friends who lost their dog. The joy in the Perrito just reflected the joy that their dog always brought me. Just lovely.
A sailor who fell in love with a mermaid
I collect mermaids of all sorts... this image will have an honored place among them. This is one of a very few mermaids shown enjoying their private underwater environment unabashedly.

Original Ink And Acrylic On Canvas Painting of Buddha, "Four Types of Lotus"$1,039.99
Working in black ink and acrylic paints on canvas in an illustrative style, Rawat Vongla renders a richly-detailed scene featuring Buddha and a lotus flower. In Buddhism, the four stages of the lotus blossom represent four types of people and their distance from enlightenment. The lotus rising up above the water will readily bloom and achieve enlightenment; while the budding blossom at the water's surface needs further knowledge and understanding to do so. The under-water lotus will eventually attain enlightenment, after extensive time and training; but the mud-buried lotus, representing a dull mind, laziness and selfishness, may never achieve enlightenment at all.

Blowing bubbles beneath the sea, three fish swim together in this whimsical small-scale linoleum block print. "Fish are one of my favorite animals," says Marina Pallares. "They figure in much of my work. They're so free, as though they could fly underwater, and they come in thousands of shapes, sizes and colors! I love to go snorkeling and see just how marvelous they are."
Tiled "Peces" in Spanish.
