Oaxacan Carved Wood 3316--Tribes Mixes Snootful Armadillo
Artist: Tribes Mixes Location: Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico
An armadillo with a twist! A must-have addition to an armadillo collection or a one-of-a-kind folk art piece.This guy has his own style and ideas about what it means to be an armadillo.
Hand-carved from cedar, this colorful cat showcases the distinct style of the Tribes Mixes. Paint is placed onto the carving one drop at a time from a one-hair paint brush. Many layers of drops are placed on top of each other, giving the piece a "bumpy" three-dimensional appearance.
Income from the sale of art goes to fund the community and helps send older children to school in the city of Oaxaca.
Hand carved and painted on cedar wood.
12" long. 5" wide. 3.5" tall.
