Quick Overview

A great example of the work of the very talented Julia Fuentes and her husband Jose Juan. Julia is part of the world renowned Fuentes Family, including Epifanio Fuentes, Zeny Fuentes and Efrain Fuentes. Julia Fuentes actually used to do the painting on her brother Zeny's pieces, until branching out on her own this past July. In my opinion however, Julia has surpassed her brothers in her talent in the painting of these wood carvings. Considering that she actually studied art at Bellas Artes... a famous institution in Mexico City! Wow! We were amazed at the beauty of her pieces when we first saw them, and are so excited to be able to share them with the world. The shading technique that she uses in her artistry is just amazing. One of the most incredible aspects of her work is that she has managed to elevate the art form to more of a fine art approach, while maintaining the beautiful whimsy that one finds in Mexican Folk Art. You can definitely see the trademark style of her family in her work still, and it is fantastic seeing another family member keeping these traditions alive.

This majestic cat is truly masterful! We just love the awesome features of this carving... the mixture of the amazing jewel tone colors, the carved eyes and the adorable face, the perky ears, the curvature of the tail, the gorgeous sacred feathered serpent design on the front and back, and the sense of movement in the paws... this one has the best of everything! Being from an up and coming, truly talented artist, this cat will make a beautiful addition to your collection! The only removable part is the tail. The piece has been signed by both Jose Juan and Julia... a truly delightful young couple!
