Artist: Fernando Espinal                                  Location: Arrazola,  Mexico

A interesting creation from artist Fernanco Espinal. Is it a man or is it a lizard?

This symbolic nagual portrays an ancient native belief in humans with the power to transform into animal. Shapeshifters are still held in respect and rarely spoken about within many Meso-American villages today. 

A rare folk-art piece.

Hand carved and painted on copal wood.

20" long. 12" wide. 8" tall.
