Oaxacan Wood Carving Melchor Howling Coyote Oaxaca Mexican Folk Art Alebrije
GORGEOUS PURPLE AND BLUE HOWLING COYOTE OAXACA WOOD CARVING BY THE RISING STAR AND #RD GENERATION YOUNG ARTIST GIOVANNI MELCHOR RAMOS. GREAT CARVING FILLED WITH BEAUTY AND A SENSE OF MOTION! Giovanni Melchor Ramos is the son of Jesus Melchor and Maura Ramos, and the grandson of one of the original Master Carvers Coindo Melchor. Giovanni is a young third generation carver who has already won several awards and recognitions for his work. Giovanni learned the art form from his talented parents, and then went on to also carve and paint for the workshop of Master Carver Jacobo Angeles. With his exposure to different styles of painting, Giovanni began developing his own style of painting. He has taken home the Honorable Mention Award at the Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art's juried award show in 2013 and 2016. We love seeing how Giovanni is faithfully carrying on the traditions of his family, and keeping the art form alive for future generations. I love he carved in deep set eyes of this fantastic howling coyote! The shading of colors is beautifully done, and then accented by bright pops of metallic gold. And the coyote has a great sense of movement with the positioning of the upturned head to appear to be howling at the moon. Approximate Measurements: 5 7/8" high x 5 7/8" long x 2 deep.
