Charming Folk Art Armadillo by Vicente Hernandez Vasquez

Vicente Hernandez Vasquez is a prolific artist known for his colorful alebrijes (folk art animals and figures). He works out of San Martin Tilcajete in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Oaxaca has developed into an area that attracts folk artists, who use wood from the copal tree to create their pieces. After carving the animals, many layers of paint are applied to create his distinctive style. Wildly imaginative, Vasquez has painted this 8 ¼” long armadillo in turquoise and decorated it with pink dots with white centers, yellow and orange-red claws, and blue, red, and black rows of “scales” on his back. The 4” wide and 2 ¼” tall piece is in excellent vintage condition with a few rubs of paint, but not noticeable. The fellow has a couple of stubby claws that first appear to have been chipped, but they are painted, so Vasquez planned his piece that way. It is signed on the bottom and bears a sticker indicating that it was made in Mexico.

This would be a fabulous addition to a Mexican or folk art collection or as a stand-alone statement piece. Please contact us if you have any questions. We will always consider reasonable offers.
