Mexican Folk Art Sculptures Created by Residents of Oaxaca

mexican folk artIn the Tree Magic Folk Art Etsy store, wooden Mexican folk art sculptures of stylized animals come to life with vibrant colors and whimsical features. The sculptures are created by residents of Oaxaca, decorated with elements characteristic of folk art from the state –designs made of brightly colored dots and animals with exaggerated ears, tails and facial features. The artists carve the figures from copal wood and decorate them with acrylic paint. Most of the figures sell for between $100 and $200.

These vibrant, wood sculptures are examples of the Mexican folk art tradition.
