Javier Jimenez: Extraordinary Ram
Javier Jimenez creates some of the finest woodcarvings in Oaxaca. He is an extraordinary painter, who takes such care on all of his pieces, being them miniatures or large sculptures. This tall one-piece ram is truly magnificent. Not only is this one-piece figure extraordinarily carved, but the painting is absolutely superb. The pattern of the face is inspired by Oaxacan embroidery. The legs are painted with a woven-basket design. Take a look at the magnificent horns, with each side painted with a different but harmonious pattern. The top of the horns has delicate Oaxacan symbols and fretwork. An extraordinary example of the talent of Oaxacan woodcarving artists.
