My dear friend is THRILLED with this kitty!
Sent this to a v dear friend for a Significant Birthday; shes a total cat person and an artist as well, so has a highly refined sense of both Cat and Craft. She LOVES it -- sent me pictures of the gift-wrap (regular Novica) and her own cats watching; now in a place of honor in her studio. Thanks so much, Amazingly Talented Novica Artist!

Handcrafted Cedar Mayan Sculpture from Guatemala, "Devoted Midwife"$379.99
A Mayan midwife is realized in cedar atop a pinewood base. Guatemalan artist Nicolas Chavez Sojuel hand-carves this sculpture, detailing the midwife's elaborate jewelry and headdress. She sits with legs crossed, a child held close to her breast. For the artist, this sculpture presents a view of quotidian Mayan life, as the midwives would often take their children along with them as they worked.
Guatemala Carved Cedar Maya Ballplayer Sculpture, "Jaina Island Ballplayer"$719.99
Seated, a man of importance is pensive. Nicolas Chavez Sojuel expertly carves the poignant expression of a Maya ballplayer in cedarwood. The ancient athlete wears ornate jewelry, earrings and beaded necklaces; his protective wristbands and a thick, padded girdle are worn during the ritual ballgame. The Guatemalan artisan interprets a small ceramic figurine as realistically as did the pre-Hispanic ceramists of Jaina Island more than a thousand years ago. The original polychrome sculpture can be seen in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.
Bamboo Root and Wood Duck Beach Goer Sculptures (Pair), "Beachside Ducks"$59.99
Ready for the beach, two tucks stand side-by-side, wearing swimsuits and sandals. Balinese artisan Susi Susanti creates this nautical pair of sculptures which is hand-carved from natural bamboo root with acacia wood accents.
Hand Carved Jempinis Wood Hummingbird Sculpture from Bali, "Hummingbird Couple"$59.95
A pair of joyful hummingbirds dance and flutter as they find an inviting spot in this gorgeous sculpture by Yudi Suardi. With the desire to carry on the tradition of Balinese wood carving, the talented artisan hand carves these dancing birds with passion, skill, and an incredible attention to detail. Using local jempinis wood and benalu wood, the artisan brings the two birds to life, accentuating every detail and inviting the onlooker to bask in the cheerfulness and curiosity of the hummingbirds. Please expect variation in the size and shape of the natural wood base.
