    Very special handmade items. Beautiful!

  2. Gorgeous! I love that owl! 🙂

  3. Yes indeed they are wonderful pieces. Is the owl symbolic of something in particular in Mexican folk art traditions?

    • Thanks so much for taking a look and commenting. I don’t exactly know how to answer your question about the owl. I “Googled” Mexican folk art owl and several sites came up, but nothing much on why the owl is part of the folk art. If you find something, let me know.
