Oaxacan Wood Carvings
Handcrafted in Mexico

All throughout the villages of Mexico, you will find various forms of whimsical art.  Oaxacan wood carvings are carved from the Copal tree while the wood is still green.  The name of the art originates from the State of Oaxaca (Wa-HAH-Ka), specifically in the villages of Arrazola, La Union Tejalapan, and San Martin Tilcajete.  Interestingly, this area of Mexico is quite large but in a state of poverty.  Even so, the folk art traditions are considered among the most creative and richest in the world.  

These wood carvings are extremely popular and because of their movement, humor, and vibrant colors, they look great in any home, office, or as a gift!  The design of each carving comes from the carver's own superstition and imagination.  Since magic and myth are a huge part of the culture in this region, the Oaxacan wood carvings can be dramatic in design. 

Some of the options include lizards, which are common in Mexico, along with demon creatures, gazelles, pelicans, frogs, cats, dragonflies, and roosters, all favorites.After the shape has been carved, the carver painstakingly sands it down and then paints bright colors and unique designs, making many of the designs appear realistic.

Mexico Trivia

The first humans in the Americas were descendants of northeast Asian nomads who took part in a series of migrations across the Bering Strait perhaps as early as 30,000 B.C. Archaeological evidence testifies to the presence of early hunters and gatherers in Mexico around 10,000 to 8000 B.C.
