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!

Bought this as a gift for my daughter who has a black cat. She loved it and it sits among her green plants in the house. Very well made with smooth finish.

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.
