This is a lovely amate bark painting from Mexico. The outside frames measures 15 1/8 inch x 12 1/2 inch. The bark art is 8 inch x 10 inch. The painting is of a very colorful bird which I believe is a dove surrounded by a floral motif and several hearts. It is sweet and it is pretty and in excellent condition. Would make a lovely gift. The colors are rich and vibrant and are yellow, blue, green, orange, red all outlined and accented in black. I don't know what kind of tree the bark is from. It is nicely matted in a brown mat but would also look great against a white mat. Note: Mexican Bark Paintings are one of the many interesting and original Folk Arts of the traditional Mexican culture. This Mexican folk art dates back to around 1200 BC and it is very colorful and elaborated. Bark paintings are usually wildlife, village scenes, birds and other images of the community.
