Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Hand-carved and then painted in cheerful colors, these alebrije carvings are the most sought-after folk art in Mexico. Each finely-crafted sculpture reflects its maker's talent and imagination. We buy our figurines directly from carvers living in villages of the Oaxaca valley. Most are signed by the artists. 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 paint the finely-detailed patterns. 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 wood carvings, features all fur-bearing creatures, except cats and dogs. Take a look at our selection of colorful bats, with their spread wings and friendly faces, by carver Lauro Ramirez. The upbeat, pink coyote is by Juventino Melchor. Carver Arsenio Morales, whose figures all have black, glass eyes, is represented here by his otters, monkeys and his whimsical, big-eared rabbits. Our range of mammal wood carvings runs from inexpensive, little rats to the majestic white rhinoceros and peacock carvings made by the Tribus Mixes Collective.
