Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Hand-carved and hand-painted, these carvings are the most sought-after folk art in Mexico. With brilliant colors and fine craftsmanship, each 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. Collectors prize their cheerful features and one-of-a-kind originality. The realm ofOaxacan woodcarving reflects the best of Mexico's wonderful, "made-by-hand" artistic traditions.

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.
