One cool coyote! This coyote was hand carved and hand painted by Margarita Sosa in the famous carving village of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca, Mexico. It is done on an orange background with green and red designs, and done with Margarita's signature metallic accents. The coyote was carved out of the traditional Copal wood, an environmentally sourced local wood whose supply is controlled by the Mexican government. We just love the quality of the painting, the whimsical addition of the metallic gold for a pop, the sense of motion in the positioning of the body howling at the moon, the protruding hips, the adorable face with the bright eyes, and the sweeping curved tail in the air. The tail is removable for safe shipping, and the carving has been signed by the artist as the name of their family workshop - "El Milagro Del Copal" which translates tot he miracle of the copal wood.
