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, 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.

Click on the name under the photo or the SKU numbers which follow the photos to quickly find the cats in the Pale Horse Galleries online store.
