SKU: 198968
Adorned with cheerful artistry, this purple and pink snail makes its way from the magical lands of Oaxaca. 'The snail symbolizes life that starts and ends in a spiral,' believe Zeny and Reyna. After carving the copal wood alebrije, they use the tip of a maguey leaf to paint the florid patterns.

Please note: the antennae are removed for shipping.

    I love this brightly colored cheerful looking snail. It is like no other in my collection. I have had several of my guest comment on how cute it is.
