Lacquered Folk Art Toy Ferris Wheel
Mexican folk art toys reflect the artisan's humor and love of the delightful object. This wood, gourd and lacquer ferris wheel was handmade in Olinala, Guerrero and is absolutely delightful. Smiles are popping out all over. It rotates in a circle but it is not intended for children. But they absolutely love it. It is beautifully painted in the Olinala style. The little people are sitting in painted gourds that have been dried, lacquered and painted. The rest of it is constructed of wood, then lacquered. It is whimsical and pleasing. Very whimsical!
