Manuel Cruz Prudencio
Monkey with Ice Cream Cone

18x17, h. 31.5 cm
Origin Oaxaca

This is the first in a series of monkeys with an attribute (here a separately carved ice cream cone) that Manuel is making for OO. For larger works one has to be patient as the drying of the wood takes time before carving. After the carving it takes again more time to be prepared for the final process of painting.  Painting is carried out by Manuel's wife Rubi. In this piece both carving and painting have made a perfect object.
