This fabulous Peacock by Zeny Fuentes is a spectacular piece of hand-made Oaxacan art. Sr. Fuentes carefully hand-carved the peacock and its feathers from wood of the copal tree and then hand-painted each piece in stunning detail with a very steady hand and brilliant acrylic colors. The individual feathers are each uniquely painted and come separate from the body. This allows for safer shipping and the ability to change the look and color scheme on the bird at a moment's notice. The peacock is such an eye-catching piece it will brighten and intensify any space.
Zeny Fuentes is a Zapotec Indian and fourth generation woodcarver from San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca, Mexico. He began carving and painting when he was seven years old. Sr. Fuentes works closely alongside his wife Reyna who often adds her own touch allowing this dynamic duo to create some of the most detailed and memorable Oaxacan carvings available today. No two carvings are exactly alike and every figure is sure to add a vibrant artist's touch to any decor.
