The wood carving skill of multiple artisans of Oaxaca is displayed in these whimsical carved and painted crosses from San Martin Tilcajete. These are wood crosses that have unique designs carved in a type of bas relief work that is then painted with the vibrant colors of Mexico--lots of flowers, animals, cacti, or angels with a dotted background. They are whimsical and charming.
