Antonio Mandarin: Wise Reader Cat Alebrije


Fantastic Wise Cat by Oaxacan woodcarving artist Antonio Mandarin. The book cover says The Wise Cat and inside it has a quote by Frida Kahlo. The quote reads: "I wanted to drown my sorrows with alcohol but they learned to swim." This is a very elegant cat wearing a tuxedo, and reading glasses while smoking a cigar. His beard and ears are made of Ixtle fiber.   P.S. He is against book banning.
