Magnificent Griffin carving by Luis Pablo, one of the top Oaxacan wood carving masters.
This handsome piece is incredibly carved. The face is so powerful and expressive. The painting is textured... with a special technique developed by Luis Pablo. The wings are very detailed and wonderfully carved. Every detail is crafted with such care and superb craftsmanship. The wings are detachable and slide effortlessly when removed.
Luis Pablo is one of the very few carvers that works alone, carving and painting all of his pieces. This is a museum piece created from start to finish by this very talented artist.
