This charming cart being pedaled by a dalmatian, was carved from wood and painted by Martin Melchor in the village of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca. This cart is carrying two young dalmatian dogs, one playing a guitar and the other holding her basket purse. The carvings of San Martin are one of the great treasures of Mexico. The real work of all of the small villages around Oaxaca City, is farming, so pieces are few and far between. The wood carving is done with a machete. The wood is copal, native to the Oaxaca area. The aniline paint colors are bright and well coordinated. All of the dogs, the top of the cart and the bicycle are removable for easier shipping. The wheels move! Super Whimsical. Signed by Martin Melchor. I bought it from him in his workshop in San Martin Tilcajete.
One of a kind.
