A newer artist for us at DeSilva Imports, we fell in love with the work of Rene Xuana on one of our recent trips to Oaxaca. Rene Xuana is part of the famous Xuana Family of San Martin Tilcajete. He is a notably skilled wood carver who has a great sense of both whimsy and reality in his carvings. Rene is one of the very few carvers to craft his pieces out of one solid piece of copal wood. Most don't even attempt this feat! His wife Rudbelia is an expert painter who does fine work with much precision. It is a pleasure for us to be able to share their work with you! I love the face and the feet on this owl carving, as well as the metallic accents. Museum quality work at an attainable price! Gorgeous! This piece is signed by the artists, and there are no removable parts.
