Story Behind the Art:
'From the time I was a boy, I was attracted to art,' recalls Alejandro de Esesarte. 'When I was 20, I became an ecologist and defender of nature, and this is when I began to create animals in metal. My technique is similar to cutout metal, but more rudimentary. From this, I became inspired and started working in metal for its versatility. Today I have a workshop, a cockatoo named Coco and a cactus collection. Those are all the tools I need to continue working.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Very well made. Pretty. Get plenty of complimentsRead More
Although very pretty, I didn't think the blue was a brilliant as the photo online. It is still a very nice, unique piece. Goes great in my bathroom.Read More
This piece works very well with decorative blues and particularly with slate blue and a bright white wall. I love it.Read More
Looks much better on the wall then in the photo. I looked for quite awhile for something to bring my kitchen wall to life. This piece is perfect.Read More
I purchased this as a gift for a 13 yr. old( who is into mermaids) and she was delighted! The colors and craftsmanship are wonderful! The artwork is NOT cartoonish looking( I was concerned about that). The only thing even slightly negative I have to say is that the metal seems a little flimsy and could easily be bent or even broken if dropped so handle with care when removing from the box. That is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5.Read More
It's way too expensive, not particularly well made, painting on the face very poor. It's ok but nothing special and way overpriced.Read More
