Lovely bashful Dachshund woodcarving alebrije by Oaxacan artist Saul Aragon. The expressiveness of this sculpture is outstanding. Look at that beautiful face!
Saul is one of the founders of Ecoalebrijes, an association of carvers that is very active in maintaining a sustainable forest. Families in the Ecoalebrije Artisan Association tend to small Copal trees at their homes eventually planting them in the nearby forest when they are old enough, ensuring a constant supply of locally sourced wood.
