Quick Overview

Only in his 30's, Eleazar Morales has already achieved the status of a master in wood carving... his true genius of talent is just awe inspiring. Eleazar's work is quite distinctive amongst the carvers, and the rest of his well known family. He began carving at the young age of 14, and furthered his artistic development by studying the work of his world famous neighbor Manuel Jimenez. When Manuel Jimenez would discard a woodcarving that did not suite him, Eleazar would study the scraps left behind to further his knowledge of the art of wood carving. Eleazar has certainly come a long way from such a humble beginning, and now his work is shown in galleries around the world. His work is very fine in both the carving detail and the incredible realistic painting done with a very steady and precise hand. We just love the sense of movement in much of his work, and how the painting really reflects the nature of the animal.This pink hippo is just sheer fun! Full of all the color and whimsy that we love in Mexican Folk Art! Eleazar Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you! This hippo would make a perfect and unusual addition to your collection! The piece was signed by the artist, and the tail is removable for safe shipping.
