Eleazar's work is quite distinctive amongst the carvers, and the rest of his well known family. He began carving at the young age of 14, and furthered his artistic development by studying the work of his world famous neighbor Manuel Jimenez. When Manuel Jimenez would discard a woodcarving that did not suite him, Eleazar would study the scraps left behind to further his knowledge of the art of wood carving.Eleazar has certainly come a long way from such a humble beginning, and now his work is shown in galleries around the world. His work is very fine in both the carving detail and the incredible realistic painting done with a very steady and precise hand. We just love the sense of movement in much of his work, and how the painting really reflects the nature of the animal. Eleazar Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you! This coyote would make a perfect and unusual addition to your collection! Although Eleazar intended this to be a coyote, we think this one could also pass for a fox. We love the painting, the graphic colors, and the sense of movement in the alert face and perky ears. The addition of the contrasting purple tail is perfect. Approximate Measurements: 6 3/4" high x 7 3/8" long x 3 3/8 deep.
