  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

    Josefina Aguilar Clay Frida With Four Parrots Pottery Figurine Purple Dress

    $58.00
    Josefina Aquilar is one of the masters of Mexican Folk Art. Her work is widely collected, and she has won numerous awards for her pottery. The tradition stems from her mother, Isaura Aguilar, who created clay figurines of typical scenes that she would see in her local market in Ocotlan, Oaxaca, Mexico. Today Josefina, along with all three of her sisters and their respective children, carry on the folk art tradition that was started by their mother in beautiful fashion. The Aguilar Sisters are well known for their market scenes, but have also expanded to more modernized themes such as Frida Kahlo, Dia de los Muertos and Ladies of the Night. This particular figurine is one of Josefina's best Frida Kahlo interpretations... an interpretation of Frida Kahlo's famous painting from 1943 entitled Self Portrait with Monkeys. The piece is signed by the artist. Learn More
