Tribus Mixes are famous for their unique and intricate contributions to the world of woodcarvings. Teenage Children are invited to participate in learning the arts of wood carving and painting. Proceeds from the sale of their artwork are used to provide scholarships for these same children to attend school and receive an education that would be impossible for them to obtain in their village. Neftali and Noe are brothers from the Tribus Mixes, and run this wonderful school for children. Their goal is to provide a future for the children of their tribe, teaching them art forms and educating them to give them opportunities in life,... opportunities they themselves say they never had. What a wonderful cause to support!
You can't go wrong with this Armadillo! The painting technique is so colorful and cool...so many fine details painstakingly painted on the carving. And the carving itself is just fantastic! I love the ridges on the shell, the face with it's long snout, and those feet! Just magnificent! The tail and ears are removable for safe shipping. The armadillo is signed by the artist.
