Customers at Mi Casa Gallery are in love with our collection of
whimsical figurines Mexican folkart ceramic figurines by members of the Aguilar family, including "Ladies of the Night" by Josefina Aguilar.
The Aguilar family from Ocotlán, Oaxaca, Mexico has a
long tradition of creating imaginative and humorous decorative
figurines that have graced homes and museums all over the world. These
capricious, brightly colored figures depict cultural traditions and
scenes from everyday life in Mexico.
The folkart form was created by Dona Isaura Alcantara

Josefina, Irene, Concepcion, and Jesus - her grandchildren, and
Josefina's husband Jose have carried on the tradition.
