A signed one of a kind insect day of the dead figure. Central American? Mexican? I do not know the artist so I am not sure of the specific location. Superior craftsmanship, feels like clay.

If were to charge per hour at a sub-minimum pay, this beautiful hand cut and assembled paper model would cost much more.

Another wonderful ornament to hang. Made by hand out of potato flour. Brilliant sculpturing and brilliant hand painted colors. This retablo devil figure is a "SHE" as you can see. She has a panflute. Great details, ready to hang anywhere. I would keep her out of direct sunlight, as I suggest you keep anything with brilliant colors. She is about 4 1/2" tall to wing tip. She is new.
