On the Road


This beautiful sculpture was made by an artist from Mexico who hand carves these out of wood.

Speaking of on the road I am on my way to Denver for the weekend. I may not be able to visit you all tomorrow but I will be back Sunday evening and will catch up with you then.

Have a wonderful weekend!

That's a great sculpture! I love it. I especially appreciate the vibrant colors.

Sharon said...

It looks like the three wise men in the back seat of that car!

I don't know how big these are but they look like they could make wonderful toys for kids. I could be all wrong though and these are meant to be displayed and much too expensive for a toy.. Wood toys are such a treasure so I always keep my eyes open.

Always such colorful things here at your blog. Love these carved items. I used to carve wood myself but it has fallen by the wayside. I might pick it back up now, after seeing these!

That looks to be a lot of hours of work put into that art piece. Take some pictures along your road trip to share with us.

Do you know if the artist is from Oaxaca? This looks like other art works from that region and I simply love it.

Reed said...

Very interesting. I would like to see the artist's work when I come to NM this fall.

It's so good to see that this kind of folk art continues to exist. From the Oaxaca region?

Jack said...

Oh my gosh, I love this piece. I love how there are the 3 kings riding in the backseat! Have a great trip to Denver- sounds like a short trip for a long drive!

I went back & read the comments- after I read Sharon's I went back & clicked to enlarge. Sure enough! I'd go a step further & say it looks like a funky Joseph driving, Mary & baby Jesus in the passenger's seat, the three wise men, an angel & I don't know who the other guy is in the back. I wonder what the cost of this piece was- had to be a lot due to all the work that went into it, but it is a classic!
