Arrazola, Xoxocotlan, Oaxaca: More from Lucila and Felipe Zarate
In the previous post, I said that Felipe and Lucila were father and daughter. He does the carving and she does the finish painting. Lucila was the one I met first, and I had several talks with her as I photographed her art. I was under the impression that she and Felipe were a husband and wife team, which is common among the Zapotec artists and wood carvers.
Oopsey daisy! She is his daughter, as became obvious the first time I was able to visit and photograph their workshop and little gallery. They do a really good job with cats, if you're a cat lover. These pieces are for the collector, for gifts or, for you if you just like cats.
