The Latin American cousin to the Gnome is the Duende. Unlike the friendly Gnomes the Duendes have a grumpier disposition and have been known to live inside walls of homes. Even clipping the toenails of children. In rural Oaxaca the Duendes are a real thing and it is best to make friends with them. Impeccable single sculpted piece carved figurine showcases Avelino's museum quality finesse. Amazing standalone work of art.
