Moose with Antlers Mexican Wood Carving

This Mexican wood carving of a pale gray with white lines and red antlers was carved from wood and painted by the  in the remote village of  La Union, Oaxaca. The underbelly is a pale pink. The fellow is inspired by the animals so prevalent in the countryside of Mexico--though there are no moose!  The carvings of La Union are a little more rare than those of other Oaxaca wood carving towns because the town is difficult to reach.  The real work of La Union is farming, so pieces are few and far between. The wood carving is the older, more rustic style that is done with a machete. The wood is copal, native to the Oaxaca area. The aniline paint colors are bright and well coordinated. The antlers are removable for easier shipping. Whimsical. Unsigned.
