In Mexico Elephants have always been associated with good luck. If the elephant is trumpeting add good fortune. This is an iconic piece by one of the most celebrated Oaxacan artists in the last twenty years. Maria is also one of the only artists to still paint the undersides in standout contrasting colors. A folk art treasure and classic.
