This cheerful yellow rooster was carved by Victor Xuana and painted by his talented wife, Jesusita Xuana, of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca. If you are familiar with the Xuana pieces, they are exceptionally well done both in the carving and the painting. This rooster features the teeniest tiny dots and dashes and is another gorgeous example of how small the dot painting of the Xuanas can get. The dots and sophisticated color choices on the body painting are signature style of the this very collectible artwork from Oaxaca. Signed.
