Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Hand-carved and then hand-painted brilliant colors and minute detail, these alebrije carvings are the most sought-after folk art in Mexico. Each finely-crafted sculpture reflects its maker's talent, imagination and creativity. We buy the figurines here directly from the renowned carvers living in villages of the Oaxaca valley. Our carvings are signed by the artists. Many of our customers are collectors who prize their whimsical features and one-of-a-kind originality. In most wood-carving families, the husband does the carving and whittling, children sand the figurines to a smooth finish, and it is often the wives who devise the patterns and apply the paint. The realm of Oaxacan woodcarving reflects the best of Mexico's wonderful, "made-by-hand" artistic traditions. For more details, download our promotional flyer at this link.

This subcategory of collectible Oaxacan woodcarvings, features cat and dog figures. The carvings are one-of-a-kind, carved by hand and signed by the artists. We feature the work of renowned Mexican folk art makers such as Lauro Ramirez, Arsenio Morales, Roberta Angeles, Juventino Melchor and the Tribus Mixes collective. Each carver has a distinctive style. Sometimes, you can tell the artist by the eyes. Lauro Ramirez and his wife Griselda make carvings with expressive faces and friendly eyes. Arsenio Morales used black, glass eyes in most of his carvings. The Tribus Mixes pieces are often distinguished by their raised, textured paint patterns. Cheerful and colorful cats and dogs are probably the most popular of all the Oaxacan woodcarvings.
