I love how true to the nature of the animal Eleazar Morales' wood carvings are! Not your average just cute faced animals, his carvings are so realistic! 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. 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. Eleazar series of gorillas have always been one of our favorites, and we have one in our own personal collection. This silverback gorilla is so cool! Eleazar Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you! There are no removable parts, and the piece has been signed by the artist.
