This charming farm cart filled with diablitos (little devils) with striped horns playing the guitar and carrying their forks was carved from wood and painted by Eloy Santiago in the remote village of  La Union, Oaxaca. The red-faced devil with the decorated green pants is driving a horse driven cart, so prevalent in the countryside of Mexico. 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 of La Union 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. All of the devils, the horns and the horse are removable for easier shipping. Super Whimsical. Signed.

One of a kind.
