Arrazola, Oaxaca, Mexico: Here's a couple of sculpted cats in copal wood
Many people like cats. Here we've put two of them together to offer as a pair. A blue cat and a golden cat eyeing each other. Two fine examples of the craftsmanship and artistry of the Zapotec artists of Oaxaca. These two are from the father-daughter team of Felipe and Lucila Zarate. If you haven't already, you can see them and read all about them here and here.
These two cats, titled Dos Gatos Sentándose (two cats sitting), can be purchased from Felipe and Lucila at the Pale Horse Galleries online store. Just click on the link or copy and paste this link into your browser: http://palehorsemex.vstore.ca/product_info.php/cPath/2/products_id/132

These are being offered as a pair for a savings of $35.00 over the price for each if purchased seperately. Either cat can be purchased seperately from the Pale Horse Galleries store, the Blue Cat here and the Golden cat here.
These beautiful examples of Zapotec imagination and skill make great gifts and collectibles. They are sure to draw attention and admiring comments when spotted on display in your home.
