Pale Horse Galleries

Art of the Indians, or Indigenous peoples, of Mexico -- the Zapotec, Mixtec, Olmec, Maya, Aztec (Mexicas), Yaqui and Apache. One might refer to some of the pieces pictured here as "crafts". One would be wrong. The work that you will see represents these peoples' view of their world and everything in it. The making and selling of this art is these peoples' only means of supporting their families. It is all that they know how to do. As you will see, they do it very well.

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:

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.
