Lacquer Boxes

$ 40.00

Mexican lacquer boxes are an example of a folk art that appears in several regions in Mexico and was most likely imported from Asia at some point in Mexico's history. These incised lacquer boxes are special in that they are made in Olínala, Guerrero, a difficult place to get to. They are also special because of the color combinations and the real artistry in the incision of the design into the layers of lacquer.

Traditional lacquer work is done by layering one color of laca onto the object, then allowing it to dry for a good period of time, layering another color, allowing to dry again. Then the design is etched or incised through the top layer of laca with a turkey quill!
