  1. Oaxacan Wood Carving Armando Jimenez Green Gallo Rooster
    $168.00
    I love this green and multi colored rooster wood carving by Armando Jimenez. Armando Jimenez is the grandson of the master carver Manuel Jimenez, who is credited with creating the whole movement of the Oaxacan wood carvings, also sometimes referred to as alebrijes (although the term alebrije is more appropriately attributed to the paper mache figures from the Linares Family of Mexico City). Armando works closely with his brother Moises, and the carvings of both of these very talented men are in high demand. What a great way to support a living legacy, and an art form that has been passed down within the family. Armando and Moises pieces, while adhering to the traditional painting style of their family, shows incredible range of creativity in the whimsical animals depicted ... animals often not native to Oaxaca. What a great sense of whimsy in this rooster.... it just makes you want to stop and take it all in! I just love the top feathers, the beak, the feet, and the sense of movement in the curvature of the tail feathers! So colorful and so beautiful! There are no removable parts. It is signed by Armando Jimenez. Learn More

  3. Oaxacan Wood Carving Candido Jimenez Green Dog Flowering Vines
    $60.00
    We just love the colors of this dog! This wood carving was hand painted by Candido Jimenez. Candido is one of the brothers of Maria Jimenez. Together with their brothers, Aaron, Miguel and Alberto, they produce some of the highest quality carvings in the village of San Martin Tilcajete. Maria started off practicing embroidery, while her brothers followed the traditional path of wood carving. When her oldest brother Aaron, who carved and painted his own figures, had trouble selling his pieces commercially, Maria stepped in and began painting the figures for her brother. She borrowed her designs from the intricate embroidery patterns that she used, and her brother's business quickly became successful. The family pieces have an elegance that stands out in the village. This dog is no exception. We just love the colorful floral pattern, the floppy ears, the adorable face and the perky tail! It has all the qualities of whimsy and color that we love in Mexican Folk Art. The tail is removable for safe shipping, and the piece has been signed by the artist. Learn More
