One of our favorite trips on our travels in Oaxaca is to the village of San Pedro Cajonos! Situated high in the mountain Sierras three hours from Oaxaca City, this is one of the most idyllic settings that one may ever find! Perched at the top of the mountains, with sweeping views of the surrounding canyons and distant pueblos, San Pedro Cajonos kisses the clouds and shines in its art forms. One of the most famous of San Pedro Cajonos artists, is the Blas Family of wood carvers. There style is so unique, and can be identified readily upon sight. Bright colors, and fine painting are their hallmarks. Medardo Jr. is the young son of the well known master carver Medardo Blas, who unfortunately died several years ago from a brain tumor. It is wonderful to see his sons carrying on the family traditions! I absolutely love Medardo and his brother Javier Blas' bird wood carvings! This peacock is a fun example! We just love the long spindly legs, and the colorful tail feathers! Nicely painted and a great size, it will make an affordable addition to your collection. A stand out piece at this price! The tail feathers are removable for safe shipping, and the piece is signed by the artist.
