Decidedly dark. Wide mouth night themed hippo is impressively single piece carved from copal wood. Rows of Zapotec orbs migrate their way around this jet black form. Blue circles, orange triangles, yellow weaves make this piece pop! Benevolent and upbeat demeanor. One of the most detailed Zeny Fuentes pieces we currently have in the gallery.   For the classic look of Oaxacan Woodcarving from the late 1980's to the early 2000's this is a prime piece.
