Guatemalan Ceramic Owls

Guatemalan Ceramic Owls by Rudy A. Girón

The traditional ceramic owls in La Antigua Guatemala are yellow, orange and brown as I have show you before, but more recently on Brilliant and Colorful Guatemala so these unusually looking tecolotes caught my attention. These ceramic owls get their distinctive paint job at one of the village around Lake Atitlán; San Antonio Palopó if I’m not mistaken. Well, one thing is certain, it doesn’t matter the color or paint job or even the materials, tecolotes are among the most popular figures found in the Guatemalan handicrafts and decoration markets.
