Virgin of Guadalupe sculpture

Ocotlan, Oaxaca



24" x 16"

Impressive museum-quality Virgin of Guadalupe sculpture!  Wonderful detail, excellent craftsmanship.  Signed by the artist.  A similar Guadalupe sculpture by Demetrio is currently on exhibit at the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) in Pomona, CA.

Demetrio is one of Oaxaca's most talented folk artists.  He is the son of master folk artist Josefina Aguilar.  As a child, he helped his mother paint her ceramic pieces.  As an adult, he has developed his own style and is highly acclaimed in his own right.  He has exhibited around the world including the International Folk Art Festival in Santa Fe, NM.  His work is featured in the book "Oaxacan Ceramics" by Lois Wasserspring (Chronicle Books).
