If you like the carved, rustic, wooden heads of La Union, take a look at these super cute little animals (animalitos) by the Santiago family. These little guys are carved out of a couple pieces of copal wood. Their legs are nailed to their bodies with tiny nails. Their ears, tails and horns are not removable. Whimsical facial expressions and colors make them a darling gift. They are very collectible and getting harder to find.
