The Dog's sculpted skeletal shape is influenced by Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead Traditions. More than just an accessory for the home this whimsical work of art is hand painted with colorful patterns. The Talavera patterns cover the back of their floppy ears, and back of the head. The ceramic base is hand painted with the same matching Mexican Talavera pattern. Each Dog sculpture is individually hand-painted by the top Talavera Mexican artisans; located in Guanajuato Mexico.


Both large and small Muertos Doggie sculptures are made up of 3 individual pieces.

  1. The head with hand-sculpted large floppy ears. A thick metal pin extends out from the head and nserts to the top of “the neck bone” on the body.
  2. The tail is also fixed with a thick metal pin that inserts to opposite end of the body . 
  3. The solid ceramic Talavera base is fused to the legs and  body. 

The metal pins allows both the head and tail to swivel on the body. This unique feature allows you to display and adjust just the way that you prefer. All pieces are included with each sculpture.

Artisan Story
Talavera, A Cultural Artistry. 

Each Muertos Doggie sculpture is individually hand-painted by celebrated Talavera artisans of Guanajuato Mexico. We partner with this group of fair-trade artisans, to create several beautiful pieces of folk-art like the Muertos Cat sculptures. Their technique is inspired by the old-world painting style known as Talavera and Majolica, their talent in this artistry dates back centuries and has been passed down from one generation to the next.

Talavera Artistry

Talavera style is a popular Mexican style used by crafters from Puebla, Tlaxcala, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali. The indicator colors of this Mexican style are typically blue and white, but 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.

    What we received was far beyond our expectations.

    Heard about Zenwaro from a friend. Checked out their collections online. Saw some items we thought were cool, so we ordered. What we received was far beyond our expectations. The muertos doggie and donkey sculptures were beautiful, well made, and packed so well I don’t think they could have broken no matter what. Great service, great collections, and amazing quality! Thank you!
