Arrazola, Oaxaca, Mexico: More wood sculptures and alebrijes
Here are two artists I have not yet introduced. They are the husband and wife team of Fidencio and Elva Ojeda from Arrazola, Xoxcotlan, Mexico.
Elva and Fidencio have been carving and painting copal wood figures and alebrijes for about 20 years. As is common among the Zapotecs, the men do the carving and the women do the painting.
This piece can be purchased from Fidencio and Elva through the Pale Horse Galleries online store. You can click on the link or copy and´paste this into your browser: http://palehorsemex.vstore.ca/
for art, gifts and collectibles -- all hand made
by Mexican indigenous artists.
