Sculptural wall art with a cultural twist. Our Oversized Talavera Longhorn sculptures will give your walls splash of color and artisanal authenticity. Individual bull horn sculptures are molded from dense and durable ceramic. Then hand painted by highly skilled and free thinking Talavera artisans of Central Mexico. Individually hand painted with a mixture of intricate geometric, floral, and cultural patterns, inspired by traditional Talavera & Majolica artistry. Over a dozen vibrant colors and detailed patterns cover the entire skull and flow out to the deep red horns with black tips. Since Talavera longhorns are "free hand painted" this means no stencil is used. Overall patterns will vary slightly from piece to piece allowing each sculpture to be an original work of art.

Safe for outdoor display. Since each Longhorn sculpture undergoes multiple kiln bakes at very high heat with additional glazing process. A complex artisan procedure, the end result is durable work of art that resilient to rain, sun, and temperature fluctuation. More on the process of creation below.


Just the right hook. Included with each Sculpture.

Over several years of testing various hooks & brackets, we found no device in the marketplace that met our standards for securely mounting these sculptures. We decided to make our own custom bracket.

  1. Included with each sculpture is a solid steal bracket that is heated  and manipulated to secure the obscure shape, counter the weight when suspended, while protecting the ceramic interior. While these hooks have met our standards we suggest consulting a professional for proper installation. 
  2. One OverSized Authentic Talavera wall-hanging Sculpture.

How It's Made

This oversized ceramic wall-hanging sculpture is hand sculpted from clay that is then high-fired in a large kiln. The ceramic sculpture goes through two step kiln-fire process. The 1st bake allows the raw clay / terracotta to dry and harden before it is hand-painted with lead free natural paint. The 2nd bake is done in high-fire kiln with protective glaze that is applied before final bake. The glaze coat is natural silica glass, when baked in a high-fire kiln where temperatures reach 1500º - 1800ºF the glaze layer bonds to ceramic on a molecular level making both clay and glaze inseparable and impenetrable to water and other elements. This high firing process allows the Cow Skull to be completely safe for outdoor display year-round. Artisan sculpted and completely hand painted Talavera patterns that may vary slightly.

Artisan Story

Talavera. A Complex and Composite Cultural Art-form.

Areas of Central Mexico like where our Tierra studio is located, within the state of Guanajuato have high quality natural clay which is pulled from the earth and used to create all of our Terracotta molds. Once the various molds are kiln dried the artisans then use a fusion of both Talavera and Majolica painting techniques to embellish our sculptures, bowls, pots and more with vibrantly colored geometric and floral patterns. Both Talavera and Majolica painting techniques originated in Spain but greatly expanded when brought to Mexico and have continued grow with every new generation of artisans since the 16th century. The Tierra Collection celebrates this artisan tradition and every piece of Earthenware we create is intended to be used and enjoyed both indoor or outdoor.

Talavera style is a popular Mexican style used by crafters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style is usually blue and white, but in recent decades artisans have added yellow, black, green, orange, and mauve to the style color palette. The color palette is made with natural pigments to get the right shades for the pottery.

    I love this! I have a lot of Talavera and this is one of the best. Awesome quality. The first delivery was damaged by the carrier. I followed Clayton's instruction for return and there were no further issues. I returned the damaged unit and received a replacement in perfect condition right away! Shout out to Clayton and his team for working to make this such an easy transaction. We're in the process of moving so this will be one of the first things that I hang in my new house!! Will be following Zenwaro to see what my next purchase will be!!

    I searched on the web for a longhorn and have been very hesitant of where to purchase it, needless to say it took me a long time to make a decision. When I stumbled on ZENWARO, I was a little hesitant at first and then SURPRISE! Every step of the way it was a great experience. I had some questions and they answered right away. Not a robo letter but a real email directed to my questions. I was assured every step of the way. When I encountered an issue with the delivery, they where immediate to address it and solve the situation. Then I received my beautiful large Longhorn in perfect condition, very well packed and it is so much more beautiful in person. I love it!!!

    Thank you ZENWARO team, I already have another purchase in mind. For now, I can’t wait to hang this beautiful artful and colorful piece in my home.

    Beautiful Craftsmanship! Zenwaro performs Marvelous Internationally

    I live in the in the UK, always skeptical if US online companies can safely fulfill expensive and fragile orders. Zenwaro did not disappoint these guys are Professionals! From USA to UK - had to pay extra import duty (approx £30) but totally worth it. Great customer service, reasonable deliver time and most importantly - a beautifully crafted centre piece!
