Martin and his wife are from San Martin Tilcajete, like Maximino and Jolanda from La Union, are artistically inseparable. It is fascination to see how they compliment each other with ideas and their execution. In recent wood carving the attention to painting has taken over all interest as if the wood carving where no more than the canvas to paint on. The focus has been directed to small details of painting and painting skill. The work of Martin and Hermelinda has a broader vision in an assemblage of ideas. As you will see in their piece called Bicycle Race how once individual pieces have come together in a larger, exciting event.
