A spectacular raccoon from the workshop of Jacobo and Maria Angeles Ojeda, measuring 19" long by 9 1/2 at highest point of the tail and about 4" in depth. The undisputed pioneer of innovation in painting styles, Maria introduced the inclusion of Zapotec symbology found throughout archaeological sites in the region, which they named indigenous style or "grecas" style. This launched a revolution of imitation that has spurred numerous others to greater heights of creativity and skill. The response of the workshop has been an evolution of painting on a micro scale that remains unparalleled to this day. The characteristic depth of color of the paints in their work combines ancient indigenous tinting techniques with more modern paints. Price includes insured shipping via Priority Mail within the US.
