Product Details

. . Spanish ceramics, with the averred good luck properties of a Gecko

This is something special . . and it would make an awesome gift to wish good luck to a friend or loved-one!

This impressive piece (one of several ceramic figurines in our shop) is a stunning example of Spanish ceramic art. It is made in the northeast of Spain, famous for its Mediterranean seafronts along the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, and of course for its culture and art. (Cataluña, or Catalonia was the birthplace of painter Salvador Dalí and Antoni Gaudi).

And it is said that the Gecko brings good fortune, and protection from adversity.

This proud-looking Gecko is intricately finished in the Catalan modernism style . . a form of architectural art seen typically around Barcelona's Parc Guell. Each piece is hand-painted in dazzling colours to produce a beautiful and uniquely-crafted figurine that would make a delightful present . . and a unique gift from Spain.

Description: This Mediterranean Gecko or salamander figurine is quite large. It measures approx 26.5cms (10.4ins) long by 15cms (6ins) at its widest part. It has a hanging arrangement on the underside so that it can be wall mounted, or stand alone either in the home or office. The hand-painted, porcelain-like finish is simply stunning in its detail and is an intricate piece of Spanish ceramic art. Because each one is individually painted, each figurine is distinct and so no single one is exactly the same as another (so figures may differ slightly from the photos here).

In many cultures, Geckos are said to be lucky (as well as being thought of as guardians) and blessed with a passion for life. So perhaps this Gecko figurine will help guard a friend or loved-one against adversity, and pass on some of its averred good luck (and good fun) qualities!

This lucky Gecko figurine from Spain, would make a great gift for a house warming / new home present, or even a retirement gift, a present for someone starting something new, or perhaps for a golden wedding anniversary as it is flecked with gold. (Or even for a person that just loves geckos!) It is bound to attract admiring comments. Please Note: To preserve its fine features, it is best to keep this figurine indoors, or at least under-cover if outside.

A traditional product of Spain and a delightful piece of Spanish ceramic art.
