V-2: Mexican vintage wood carving, and Mexican vintage folk art, a laquered box from Olinala, Michoacan, with fantastic birds and foliage, c. 1950. The painted decorations of birds and flowers are incredible. The artist begins by hand-carving the box from wood, which is plentiful in the state of Michoacan. The box is then carefully laquered, with a black slip. After this has dried, the artist paints the decorative scenery. This method of laquer and painting has pre-hispanic origins in the region of the Tarascan natives (the Purephecha, in their own language). Condition is excellent. Size: 10 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches high by 5 3/4 inches deep (front to back of box).
SOLD. Thank you!
