Great colors for Cactus Lovers
A beautiful example in a unique shape of Talavera pottery from Mexico. I have a few pieces of this kind of pottery and this is a new design that I have not seen. I really love it and have it hanging proudly on my wall with my other Mexican and Guatemalan pieces.
Such a beautiful representation of the Virgen
I love the Virgen de Guadalupe and have her on my wall next to my bed along with other south and central American retablos and crosses. This is done in vivid porcelain and so colorful and bright.
The highlight of our renovated room.
I love this piece so much. The quality and attention to detail are excellent. But its the beauty that gets me. Its not an assembly line piece but the work of a true artist. I love Mexico and the Mexican people, and this piece reminds me of my one visit there. I hope to return. The true test is that my husband, who does not notice the decor much, mentioned to me more than once how much he loved this piece. Enough said!! :)
