I love this medium standing cat! This piece is done on a black background with multi colored accents, and then accented with gold metallic paint in Margarita Sosa's signature style. This cat was hand carved and hand painted by Margarita Sosa in the famous carving village of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca, Mexico. It was carved out of the traditional copal wood, a local ecologically harvested 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 tail and the extended hips, the adorable face and the bright eyes. This cat wood carving would make a perfect addition to your Oaxacan Wood Carving collection, or the perfect gift for any cat lover out there. The tail is removable for safe shipping, and the carving has been signed by the artist.
