  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
