Featured Reviews on Multicolor Day of the Dead Sculpture
Outstanding example of great Mexican folk art
I have purchased several pieces by the Gamez Family and have been consistently impressed by the craftsmanship and creativity of their work. I look forward to seeing more of their wonderful creations on Novica.
So many of the Talavera pieces have a mass produced look. This one seems to have a more personal touch that is reflected in the figures face.
This is another beautiful piece of art from Angel Cer?n, my second one, and for sure not the last one. Colors are amazing, and so the details. Gracias Novica for making possible that people Like me can have beautiful art from all over the world. Keep the good work, Love, Annia
