Splendid mama mouse with baby wood carving by top Oaxacan artist Nestor Melchor. This figure is impressively painted with amazing attention to detail and beauty. I love the beautiful royal blue fretwork and codex figure on the mouse's head. Note: This is true, original, one-of-a-kind-art, not "paint by numbers" or reproductions. In every piece created by Nestor and his wife Leticia there is soul and creativity. Each one is different to the next, has a new element, a new color a new way of designing their pieces.
Nestor's wood carvings are certainly some of the most beautiful in Oaxaca. Magnificent!
