Oaxacan Wood Carving Jesus Melchor White Cat Black Stripes
$35.00

Availability: In stock

A great gift for any cat lover. This cat is done on a white background, with black stripes and red dots. So cute! The artist is Jesus Melchor, son of one of the original master carvers Coindo Melchor. Coindo's recent passing was a huge loss to the Oaxacan wood carving community. It is a blessing that Jesus is carrying on the traditions of his father, as well as passing these skills down to his son Giovanni Melchor. A true artist in his own right, Jesus carves each of his own pieces from the traditional Copal wood. His wife Maura Ramos then paints each piece by hand. The tail is removable for safe shipping, and the piece is signed by the artist.

Approximate Measurements: 3 3/4" high x 7" long x 1 3/4" deep
