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.

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.
