This curious rabbit sculpture was hand-carved & painted by Jesus & Roxana Hernandez at their family workshop in Oaxaca. The Hernandez family is one of the 7 original families in San Martin Tilcajete who popularized the art of wood-carving. This beautiful piece was carved from a single piece of copal wood by Jesus and painted by his wife Roxana. Alebrije wood carvings take several months and several steps to reach the end result. Curing, carving and painting are often done by different family members who choose their craft based on their individual talents.
