A new artist for us at DeSilva Imports, we fell in love with the work of Rene Xuana on our most recent trip 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. 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 sense of joy in this elephant carving, with his lucky trunk in the air and his ears in their full glory! The only removable parts on this carving are the tusks, and the piece is signed by the artists. Museum quality work at an affordable price!
