Details

"The stories that my grandfather used to tell me inspired me to create this sculpture," explains Guatemalan carver Jose Canil Ramos. "To the Maya people, the deer is the most intelligent creature of all, and represents the purity of the forests." Canil carves the sculpture by hand from pinewood and paints it with extraordinary artistry. Before finishing the piece he applies a mixture of soot and water to achieve an antique and weathered illusion.

This was a Christmas gift to a recipient who always gets some form of a reindeer every year, and this was a total hit this year. Beautifully and artistically well made.

"The most beautiful wooden figure ever!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was so happy and excited when o opened the box and saw how gorgeous this St. Francis figure is. I not only loved the carving work on St. Francis and his animals but also the beautiful and colourful art captured in the wooden statue. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars for it!! Many thanks to José for my beautiful St. Francis!! It is now standing right next to the Jesus figure he made for me years ago ??
