this cat statuette has great colors.....I could not be more pleased.....I keep looking at it, it is so pleasing......
Erika Ulloa is my favorite retablo artist on the Novica website. I already have a nativity retablo by this artist that I will display through the holiday season. But this piece spoke to me the minute I saw it. The beauty of the ceramic figures, the fine detail in decoration, and the stunning vibrant colors all called to me as an artist. Ulloa's portrayal of Catholic symbolism in Christ's Passion is powerful and moving. Added to it is the overall charm of Andean flora and costume. It will have an important place in my religious art collection.
I love all of Ms. Florez's pieces and have been collecting them. Most of the cat series are on a bookshelf in a bedroom where my two kitties hang out, "The Cat Room". The artwork is meticulous and vibrant. Love the expressions on the cats. Also have a cute red piggy bank, plus a llama, owl incense burner, and vase/chicken. Have started given them as gifts. I'd love to see the smallest cat version done facing the other direction. Thank you for your art!
