Manuel Cruz: Spectacular Fusion Jaguar-Snail & Quetzalcoatl

Spectacular one-piece jaguar-snail with Quetzalcoatl fusion carving created by top Oaxacan artist Manuel Cruz. Manuel is well known for his superb craftsmanship and strive for perfection. This amazing sculpture is carved from a single piece of wood and is carved with unbelievable attention to detail. Notice the impressive encircling body of the Quetzalcoatl snake that forms the snail's conch, the perfection of the painting, the harmonious combination of colors, the fierce face beautifully painted! Manuel Cruz is in my opinion at his most creative and successful artistic period. A masterpiece!
