Manuel Cruz: Dazzling Cobra

Absolutely stunning cobra by Oaxaca artist Manuel Cruz. This one-piece carving is extraordinary, it is powerful, elegant and fluid. Take a look at the fabulous carving of the face. The painting by Ruvi, Manuel's wife is simply spectacular. The design combines traditional Zapotec fretwork and complex geometrical designs. On the back of the cobra, Ruvi painted two Quetzalcoatl heads and at the center Coyolxauhqui who was the Moon goddess.
