These Amate Bark Paintings are produced in the mountains of the Guerrero district in Mexico. Native artisans use dried bark as a canvas for their multicolored, almost neon, paint. This one is about 10" X 14", and shows two brightly colored birds facing each other, amidst flowers and vines. It comes in a Mexican hand carved frame. It has a yellow burlap mat, and probably was framed in the 1960-70 time period.
