Oaxacan Wood Carvings Specialty Pieces
These carvings are what one could call Gallery pieces as they are larger, more complicated, and simply a higher level of work than our normal pieces listed in the other pages in the menu to the left under Wood Carvings Oaxacan.
We are delighted to be able to offer these unique sculptures. It is our hope to expand this section as there are a number of wonderful artists that we would like to show work of. Do check back monthly as we update our offerings.
If you would like additional photos of any piece email me and I can send you what I have.
