Mexican Painted Tin Ornament of a Horney Toad
A well-known sight - and cultural symbol - throughout Mexico and the American Southwest, the horny toad is a beloved desert creature that has crawled its way into native design and into hearts everywhere.
This brightly colored tin ornament handmade in Mexico is no exception. Tin turned into pieces of art is a Mexican (and Spanish Colonial) craft tradition but these tin ornaments are art for your tree. We think they're also pretty special to hang in a window, as a package adornment, tucked into a greeting card or - why not?! - ideal for gracing the wall of your office cubicle all year long!
Each of these bright and cheerful horny toads is hand crafted by Mexican artists out of tin and then brightly painted. Lightweight and ready to hang.
