These Mexican wood carvings of spotted dogs lifting their legs, were carved from wood and painted by the Santiago family in the remote village of La Union, Oaxaca. 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 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.  Whimsical. Signed
