Miguel Santiago: Unique Sloth

Miguel Santiago created this wonderful, one-piece, sloth on a tree wood carving. Miguel has been considered one of the finest wood carver in Oaxaca. He developed an inimitable style of his own, creating complex figures and paying particular attention to the faces of his subjects. The eyes are not only painted but carved as well. The availability of Miguel's work is very limited. For a time he completely stopped creating woodcarvings, fortunately, he is now producing a few wonderful creations. This whimsical sloth is a great example of Miguel's art.
