Manuel Cruz: Spectacular Nautilus Woodcarving

Spectacular, museum piece nautilus wood carving by Master Carver Manuel Cruz and his wife Rubi Martinez. Manuel and Ruvi have incorporated wires into this one-piece figure to create the tentacles of the nautilus. The painting by Ruvi is absolutely superb with the classic Cruz Zapotec complex designs. The Nautilus' shell chamber is beautifully carved and painted in very attractive flowing patterns.  A stunning and innovative piece!
