What we love about this piece:  Victor Xuana was a miniature artist throughout most of the 1990's.  This correcamino is actually on the large scale and is a staggering single piece sculpture.  The feather patterns are painstakingly uniform and the many shades of white and grey add depth to it's pitch black color.  We recently saw a roadrunner in real life and were amazed that it has a black form with white speckles all over it so the colors are quite accurate.
