Mexican Folk Art: From Oaxacan Artist Families Hardback

Description

This beautiful reference introduces contemporary Mexican folk art by featuring prominent artists from Oaxaca in southeastern Mexico.

Their unique artworks are introduced and illustrated.

Crafted from natural materials, their ceramics, weaving, woodcarving, embroidery, tin work, toys, jewelry, candles, dried flower crafts, basketry, and celebrations of Day of the Dead handicrafts incorporate unique blends of indigenous myths with ancient patterns from Zapotec ruins.

These folk art traditions have been preserved for hundreds of years.

This sampler features 87+ artists belonging to 45+ families, many useful maps, and over 500 color photographs of their distinctive works.

A useful resource section includes a list of shops and markets of Oaxaca City and 12 of its surrounding pueblos, and a glossary identifies the frequently-used Mexican terms that apply to these folk arts.

This will be a treasured source of reference and inspiration for all who love folk art.
