The Ocumicho Last Supper Adventure

Posted by Anne Damon in Mexico Trips, Ocumicho, Religious Folk Art
I bought this clay sculpture of the Last Supper made by an Ocumicho artisan when I went to the Folk Art Festival during Semana Santa in Uruapan, Michoacán about a year ago this week. The 14 piece clay sculpture above is the last one of five very different pieces, some of them with mermaids, which I purchased, packed, schlepped all over Mexico and then shipped back to the United States. While at this festival, I had an adventure with a cab driver who made it his mission to help me find some boxes for packing. We looked in lots of different places with no success but eventually he took me to the back of a giant commercial business and we both climbed into their compactor to retrieve cardboard boxes that could be used for packing these fragile pieces. All five pieces made it home without a scratch including this fine piece!

  • Hi Bob, This blog post was from a couple years ago and this piece sold back then. I know you’d like some Ocumicho and I hope to find some interesting pieces when I go to Michoacan this summer and I will look for your Adelita paper mache figure too! Anne
