Such a fun kangaroo wood carving! The artist is Jesus Melchor, son of one of the original master carvers Coindo Melchor. A true artist in his own right, Jesus Melchor carves each of his own pieces from the traditional Copal wood. His wife Maura Ramos then paints each piece by hand. I was thrilled with this adorable kangaroo as soon as I saw it. Such an unusual subject to see in Oaxacan wood carvings, and fill with a terrific spirit of fun. There is a great sense of movement, which is rare to find in such an economical piece, from the upturned and curved tail, to the outstretched arms, to the perky ears and the positioning of the body. There are no removable parts, and the piece is signed by the artist.
