The area is rich in history and tradition, and Lauro and Griselda seek to maintain the traditions in their fine, high quality work. Their son is also quite skilled at carving, and has won several student awards for his work. It is refreshing to see a young family so involved in the traditions of folk art!This unique large white bony dog wood carving is really well executed! Masterfully carved and beautifully painted with bright pops of blue and other colors, it is just a truly eye catching piece that is full of a sense of whimsy and movement. I love the way that Lauro carved this with the bones protruding from the skinny body of the dog, the arched back, the long tail, the floppy ears, the stretching legs, and the bones protruding from the hips. His attention to all the small details are what makes him an awesome carver. Lauro truly deserves much more acclaim in the world of Mexican Folk Art, and we believe that he is one to watch! A hidden talent whose prices will continue to rise! This piece was signed by the artists, and the tail is the only removable part. Approximate Measurements: 12 1/4" high x 21 1/2" long x 5 1/2 deep.
