The beautiful laca work of Chiapas is displayed in these lovely flowered black wooden crosses. Artisans cover the wood with an organic mixture of plants and insects, which results in a wonderful soft-looking black background. The crosses are then painted with the vibrant colors of Mexico -- lots of flowers and leaves. Outlined in gold. This is a very traditional style typical of the great state of Chiapas.
