This is one of the most special compositions of work we have in the gallery. These two villagers are whimsical self portraits of father and daughter Abad and Floriberta Xuana. The man with his hunched back and cane is the elder Abad accompanying him in festival dress is Flor wearing a removable basket carved of wood. The cane that Abad is carrying is not removable. You want the very very best in Oaxacan Woodcarving here it is.

What we love about this pair: As far as Oaxacan woodcarving flair for the unique it doesn't get any better than this. These are the largest figurines we've ever had but we have only been lucky to obtain a few from this master of masters. Equally rare are these are fully human subjects and not zoomorphic nahuals.
