Zapotec Oxen Rider

$ 335.00

Oxen Rider is a quintessential highly unusual piece from one of the most sought after artists in the art of Oaxacan woodcarving.  Abad Xuana assisted by his grand daughter Floriberta have created an Ox so detailed even the sex is carved along with looping tail.  The rider is depicted as native with the signature Xuana 50's beatnik apparel as if stylized from a 1950's cartoon.  This is better than the best this art form can offer.  Super rare and incredibly unique.
