Nicolas Morales: Stingray Woodcarving

Fantastic large stingray wood sculpture by Oaxacan artist Nicolas Morales. The form of this one-piece figure is so well carved and graceful. The body language is superb, you can almost see the elegant movement of the stingray. This stingray is delicately painted with Nicolas' classic ancient codex style symbols such as eagles, and water symbols.  The stinging spine is particularly impressive, painted to give a beautiful textured effect. Wonderful!
