Pedro Carreño: Monkey with Vase Masterpiece Woodcarving

Absolutely spectacular monkey with his treasured olla wood sculpture by top Oaxacan woodcarving artist Pedro Careño. The complex sculpture features a gorgeous monkey carrying a red olla, vase while checking his surroundings.  Not only is the one-piece figure perfectly carved but the painting and coloring are superb!  The face of the monkey is beautifully carved and painted to accentuate facial expressiveness. The dark red color of the pot contrasts wonderfully with the black and white body of the monkey. Take a look at the perfection of the Aztec Sun God on the olla. Magnificent!
