Oaxaca, Mexico: A pair of fine wood carvers and painters from Arrazola
If you are looking for a collectible or a gift for someone, Lucila and Felipe Zarate from Arrazola can fix you right up. Take a look at this piece.
A "ciervo" is a stag, hence "Great Blue Stag" in the king's English. The SKU number is PHG00506 and you can find it by clicking on Grande Ciervo Azul, above, or by clicking on the SKU number.
A father and daughter team of Zapotec artists and their Grande Ciervo Azul. Felipe has been carving copal wood for some 25 years and his daughter has been painting his creations for about 15 years. I'm not sure who painted them before she started but it seemed an impolite question to ask, so I didn't.
Remember that each piece in the Pale Horse Galleries store is identified by the artist(s) who created it. I do not buy from consortiums, dealers, "artisans unions", markets or boutiques. If I cannot visit the artists in their workshops, watch them work and photograph them at work, I will not buy a piece nor offer pieces in the store.
for art, gifts and collectibles -- all hand made
by Mexican indigenous artists.
