Description
The artisans of ancient America had a great affinity for the natural world. Combining fanciful charm with a keen observation of nature, they captured the essence of the flora and fauna around them. Here, the armadillo indigenous to Central America is rendered with a few quick lines and an endearing attitude. When we blow softly upon his whistle, we share our delight with those who first held him centuries ago. - (PF.0834)
