Brightly painted clay cacti handmade in Puebla, a state east of Mexico City. These whimsical little cacti are often added to nativity scenes made of clay figures. They are miniature versions of the nopal cactus or what we know in the Southwest U.S. as prickly pear cactus. Each has a small white bird on top. The "limbs" of the cactus are movable. They come in three sizes.
