Nicolas Morales: Little Dog Alebrije

This gorgeous little dog sculpture was created by woodcarving artist Nicolas Morales. The form of the figure is so well carved and graceful. The body language is superb. This perrito is delicately painted with Nicolas' classic ancient codex style symbols such as eagles, skulls, and water symbols  The tail is particularly beautiful, painted to give a beautiful braided effect. Wonderful!
