Multicolored hand-carved sculptures inspired by Mexican folk art by Jacobo and Maria Angeles

The duo of Mexican artists Jacobo and Maria Angeles takes inspiration from folk and indigenous art of Mexico and Mesoamerica to create absolutely stunning sculptures of fantastical creatures, carved out of copal wood, in vivid colors.

Guardians are brave creatures who safeguard their tribe. These mythical characters from the tale ‘Nomads’ hold their heads high by accepting the responsibility of caring for, transporting, and defending everyone. (Theirs) is a story of resistance, persecution, and migration into a dystopian future, where science is blended with ancestral cosmovisions.
