Oaxacan Woodcarving: Gorgeous Naif Dog

Gorgeous naif dog by top Oaxacan artist Luis Pablo. Luis Pablo is certainly one of the most creative wood carving artists in Oaxaca, and through this piece, we can see why. For the last few years, Luis Pablo has been making ceramic pieces as well as painting. This dog is the first one in which he is combining two of his great talents. The dog's painting pictures a simple happy life, that reminds him of his childhood. Bright blue skies, green pasture, sun, birds, farm animals, trains that would make him of other magical places he once would travel. Of course, there is a kite; kites fascinated him and he built and painted dozens of them to fly them. lA gorgeous piece!
