This is a highly detailed miniature carving that scales up to small size. In effect a large miniature carving. A staggering amount of detail so much so that in all the villages only Victor Xuana has attained. In Oaxacan Woodcarving this is as good as it gets. Appropriate to display in a glass case with a cone of light casting directly down on it. Since 1996 this is one of only two Panda's we've procured for the gallery.
