Quick Overview

Talk about a cool and unusual carving! This Nautilus wood carving is just mind blowing! Only in his mid thirties, 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, and it sets him apart from the other carvers in his village. 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 Morales is one of our personal favorites, and we are so excited to be able to share his work with you! This nautilus is from Eleazar's line of marine life carvings, and is so full of imagination. I love the tentacles, the bulbous head and the cool and modern color combinations. The piece was signed by the artist, and the tentacles are removable for safe shipping.
