Maximino Santiago: Friendship Animals

Charming naif friends animals on park bench wood carving by Maximino Santiago from La Union, Oaxaca. One of the little friends is reading a book that says "Siempre estare a tu lado" I will always be by your side. The great charm of the figures of this region is their primitive and rustic features. Artisans from this town continue to use aniline to color their pieces, even though these colors fade with time they retain the charm of the original alebrijes.
