Quick Overview

One of our favorite trips on our travels in Oaxaca is to the village of San Pedro Cajonos! Situated high in the mountain Sierras three hours from Oaxaca City, this is one of the most idyllic settings that one may ever find! Perched at the top of the mountains, with sweeping views of the surrounding canyons and distant pueblos, San Pedro Cajonos kisses the clouds and shines in its art forms. One of the most famous of San Pedro Cajonos artists, is the Blas Family of wood carvers. Their style is so unique, and can be identified readily upon sight. Bright colors, and fine painting are their hallmarks. Jose Blas is the son of the very famous David Blas, and we love the sense of humor and whimsy in his work! This snail is one of our favorites!! The bottom of the shell has been flattened to make these very stable to display, and the artist has signed the piece on the bottom of the shell.
