    This adorable possum wood carving, with three babies dangling from it's tail is another of our favorites from 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. Oaxacan wood carvings are 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 usually works next door to 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. This possum with babies wood carving would make a special addition to your collection. Besides the babies coming off of the tail, there are no removable parts. The carving is signed by Armando Jimenez and his wife Antonia, who is responsible for the painting of the piece. Learn More
