I just love this whimsical Raccoon wood carving by Lauro Ramirez and his wife Griselda Morales! We finally met this wonderfully talented couple on our last trip to Oaxaca, thanks to our good friend Carol! And it was love at first sight! We are so excited to now carry their spectacular wood carvings! Lauro and Griselda are from Arrazola, a beautiful town just outside of Oaxaca City, and the village that many would call the birthplace of the Oaxacan Wood Carvings. Arrazola is located close to the famous ruins of Monte Alban and the newly opened ruins at Atzompa. The area is rich in history and tradition, and Lauro and Griselda seek to maintain the traditions in their fine, high quality work. Their son is also quite skilled at carving, and has won several student awards for his work. It is refreshing to see a young family so involved in the traditions of folk art! This raccoon is masterfully carved and beautifully painted. It is just a truly eye catching piece full of fine detail in both it's carving and it's painting. I love the shading around the yes! This piece was signed by the artists, and the tail is the only removable part.
