This is one of my favourite original folk art pieces from the quirky Cielito Lindo Studio. Based in San Michel de Allende, Mexico, the studio creates highly collectible pieces using oxidised tin nichos painted in electric colours with humourous, cultural and religious motifs. I had a really nice range in-store earlier this year which have now sold out but for one or two. Second order now in and should be in-store by end of September.
I hope to visit the studio myself in the New Year when I am travelling in Mexico, I can't wait to explore the cobbled streets of this beautiful colonial town, I'm sure I will find all sorts of goodies to bring home to my store.
