Famous Standing Cat

Rectangle oranges mesh with rectangles of pure red to create the iconic standing cat.  His 80's originals were megalithic in size and this newest edition is quite big and heavy itself.  At nearly a foot tall this acrobatic cat hand stands with poise and confidence.  Painted in a layer method that hasn't changed in decades.  Margarito is a legacy artist found in nearly every publication pertaining to Oaxacan Art.  We both proud and lucky to present this one to you.
