These one of a kind ceramic dogs are part of an exclusive series carried only at GracieJames. These dogs are based on a famous Pre-Columbian Colima tribe sculpture of a dog wearing a mask. This tribe valued their dogs as protectors, companions and guardians. This beautiful dog has a full mask of abalone shells. This dog is a combination of several mixed media including beautiful abalone shells and leather strands. The artist uses only high quality materials and vintage beading for the dogs.
