One of our favorite trips on our travels in Oaxaca is to the village of San Pedro Cajonos! Situated high in the mountains 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. Their style is so unique, and can be identified readily upon sight. Bright colors, and fine painting are their hallmarks. I absolutely love the Blas Family wood carvings!
This fun rooster is a new wood carving by Victoria Blas. We just adore it !! Full of whimsy and fun, and bright and cheerful colors !! They are so cute and so unique !! For such an economical piece, this rooster is packed with a cool sense of motion and detail, with the long spindly legs, the wings! and the fantastic tail feathers! Nicely painted and a great size, it will make an affordable and unique addition to your collection. The piece is signed by the artist. All of the tail feathers and wings are removable for safe shipping, and the legs also separate from the round wooden base.
