Oaxacan Carved Wood 3314---Tribes Mixes Lizard Puff Daddy
Artist: Tribes Mixes Location: Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico
Hand-carved from one piece of cedar, this large lizard 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 "puffy" or "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.
