Placido Santiago: Little Dog Sculpture

 Delightful resting dog by La Union Oaxaca artist Placido Santiago. The great charm of the figures of La Union is their primitive and rustic features.
Placido as well as the other artisans from this town continue to use aniline to color their pieces giving them a "rustic" primitive look. This is the way woodcarvings used to look and it is wonderful that the artists of La Union retain that charm. What a peaceful expression this beautiful dog has.
