This very beautiful decorated black rooster was carved and painted by Avelino Perez, of La Unión Tejalápan. If you are familiar with the carvings of La Unión, they are usually quite rustic and whimsical. This rooster by Avelino Perez features the dots and sophisticated color choices on the body and head are typical of Avelino's more sophisticated style. His carvings are a very collectible artwork from Oaxaca. Signed.
Watch for more of Avelino's carvings--parrots and a toucan--or stop into the Mpls store to see!
