ATTENTION: Arts and Crafts Lovers!!!! Meet my friend and my novelty Gift made in Colombia

As you know, my mom has come to visit for a few months from Colombia.  Of course, in her travels, she is a bearer of many gifts.... She usually comes on a late flight and I normally ask for the next day off because the night of her arrival (everytime she comes) we do NOT go to bed until everything is unpacked because I want to see all of the goodies she brought me! 

This time she brought me the most amazing AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS diptych made by Encanto Manual who is a very close friend.  Being a cat lover, I immediately fell in love with it.  This is hand painted and engraved in a suade-type fabric 
measuring 60cm by 38cm. (23.6 x 15 in) each.  

You've never seen anything like it!!!!!!!!!
This type of art is meant to be displayed in a frame with glass over it or make a throw pillow out of it.
