  1. Demetrio Garcia Aguilar Large Clay Mourner With Candle Angels Altar

    Demetrio Garcia Aguilar Large Clay Mourner With Candle Angels Altar

    $295.00
    Demetrio Garcia Aguilar is the son of Josefina Aguilar, and this is amazing third generation Aguilar Family work! It is really exciting to see how these traditions are passed down within the family, and we love being a part of it even in just a small way. Demetrio is one powerhouse of an artist! He is a true artist in that his work is thoughtful, unique and constantly pushing the bounds of what we normally see in his medium. Demetrio uses traditional themes, but always adds his own spice and twist to each theme. Familiar subjects take on whole new meanings in his creations. And there is always an intense attention to detail, provoking both visual and intellectual responses. I love this gorgeous piece!! It is one of my very favorites!! The depiction is consistent with the religious and indigenous traditions that surround you in Oaxaca. The female mourner is holding a candle, just like those lit inside the churches on a daily basis in memory of a loved one, or in prayer for the health and happiness of another. She has a traditional rebozo shawl over her head, a paractice that has become a central indigenous symbol of practical feminine dress. The rebozo can be used more modernly as a shawl, but it is traditionally worn by indigenous women in the marketplace to carry their babies, on the head as a base to balance a basket of products on their head, or as a head covering for religious celebrations such as in this depiction. At the base of this large figure, Demetrio has placed a smaller version of the mourner, kneeling at an altar with the Virgen de Guadalupe. The mourner is surrounded by angles, who carry her prayers to heaven. The pink roses that surround the mourner are a particularly beautiful addition, and the facial expression evokes emotion. I just love this piece! Learn More

  7. Fernando Jimon Tonala Clay Ceramics Burnished Pottery Great Masters Of Mexican Folk Art Miniature Lidded Jar Birds And Flowers

    Fernando Jimon Tonala Clay Ceramics Burnished Pottery Great Masters Of Mexican Folk Art Miniature Lidded Jar Birds And Flowers

    $595.00
    Miniature work is my all time favorite, and the pieces that personally always collect! Expert level museum quality painting is never easy, but on a larger surface it is generally much easier than on a small surface area. The degree of difficulty and precision in an expertly crafted museum quality miniature is just incredible. Few artists even attempt it! Such a steady hand and an expert's touch is required in these pieces, and to me, they are worth every penny. Fernando Jimon Melchor's miniatures never disappoint! They are jaw dropping gorgeous!!
