Saul Aragon: Owl

Beautiful contemporary owl woodcarving alebrije by artist Saul Aragon. I really enjoy the dotted painting technique that Saul uses to decorate many of his pieces.

Saul is one of the founders of Ecoalebrijes, an association of carvers that is very active in maintaining a sustainable forest. Families in the Ecoalebrije Artisan Association tend to small Copal trees at their homes eventually planting them in the nearby forest when they are old enough, ensuring a constant supply of locally sourced wood.
