Beautiful Owl wood carving by husband and wife duo Jose Calvo & Magaly Fuentes. The impressive carving was done by Jose with expert precision. The painting by Magaly is very eye catching and incorporates a lot of vibrant colors which make her pieces unique and distinctive.
The decorative patterns found on this piece are locally known as "grecas" and can be found at the pyramids of Mitla and Monte Alban in Oaxaca. These patterns are the benchmark of the indigenous Zapotec civilization and are very influential in the many different forms of artwork made in the region. These grecas patterns are so meticulously and finely painted with agave thorns which is used instead of a brush in order to provide the fine lines that a traditional brush can't produce. The beautiful painting work makes this Oaxacan wood carving alebrije unique & valuable.
