Isaac and Rosario Fabian are relatively new carvers for us at DeSilva Imports. As young, yet master carvers, their work is extraordinary! Full of fine detail and precise painting, the designs often incorporate multiple dots of paint, where each dot of paint is built up evenly and precisely and cover just about every part of the dog. It takes an expert and practices painter to be able to distribute this pattern so evenly and perfectly spaced, and the final product adds a beautiful textural appeal to the piece. The chihuahua dog carving is done with whimsical detail and outstanding touches are added, such as the perky ears, the bright eyes that are made with marbles, and the bone in his mouth. I love the use of the animal print on this particular piece! Truly adorable, yet masterfully crafted, this work is museum quality. Colorful, whimsical and creative! All the characteristics that make us fall in love with Mexican Folk Art over and over! This fantastic chihuahua with a bone is signed by the artist, and the tail and bone in the dog's mouth are removable for safe shipping.
