Arrazola, Oaxaca, Mexico: Alebrije wood carving - Antelope del Sol
Here's another very nice piece from the father-daughter team of Zapotec artists, Felipe and Lucila Zarate. It's called "Antelope del Sol" or antelope of the sun, and would make not only a perfect gift but also a very fine, collectible piece of Mexican art.
Felipe has carved the antelope from native copal wood and daughter Lucila has painted it a rich peach and red color and added yellow and black horns.
A great example of Mexican Zapotec wood carving craftsmanship.
You can buy this piece from Felipe and Lucila through our online store, Pale Horse Galleries. Just click on the link or copy and paste http://palehorsemex.vstore.ca/. See catalog number PHG00509 in the Wood Sculptures section of the catalog.
