Quick Overview

This weasel wood carving is absolutely AMAZING! A stand out piece carved from one single piece of Copal wood, this one is definitely Museum Quality! Such power packed into one carving! This weasel is 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 just a few years ago. In my opinion, Julia has surpassed her brothers in her talent in the painting of these wood carvings. Julia actually studied at Bellas Artes... a famous art institution in Mexico! 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. They never disappoint, and always seem to increase in beauty and detail. 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. Being from an up and coming, truly talented artist, this Weasel carving will make a great and unusual addition to your collection!

Best of the Best! This incredibly beautiful carving contains such a masterful degree of intricacy. The shading is mouth dropping gorgeous, and the absolute precision in the painting is one of the best that I have ever seen! The paint design includes beautiful perfect geometrics, but also the elegance of a traditional Zapotec feathered serpent (serpiente enplumada) on the side of the bofy.. so cool! This weasel contains the perfect sense of movement that is a hallmark of quality.. the sweeping tail, the open mouth, and the placement of the paws. I love the tiny ears! There are no removable parts.This wood carving has been signed by both Jose Juan and Julia... a truly delightful young couple!
