Details

"One of the customs we have inherited from our Maya ancestors is to give thanks to Ajaw or God every morning when we wake up and before we eat. We do it by crossing our hands over our heart and bowing, and we also use this gesture to greet our elders," says Jose Canil Ramos as he explains his inspiration. "That's how I came up with the idea of crafting a kneeling angel expressing gratitude the same way we do." Canil carves the sculpture from local pinewood and paints it with vivid detail.

I was so impressed by the carving of this wonderful piece. It goes so well with the other carving of the Virgin of Guadalupe by Jose Canil Ramos. It looks 100% better in person than in the photo.

As a San Franciscan I wanted to add this santo to my collection of artworks from Jose Canil Ramos (Jocara). It is even more beautiful than the featured photo: Saint Francis has a beautiful soulful face.

"Jose Canil Ramos"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Jose Canil Ramos is one of the most gifted artists at Novica. His carved santos are even more beautiful than the featured photographs. I have purchased over two dozen of his beautiful pieces for my collection as well as for greatly appreciated gifts for family and friends. The demand for his artworks is high so you may have to wait for the works to arrive, but be patient!

"Museum Quality Jaguar Warrior"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I received Face of a Warrior today and truly love it. Jose Canil Ramos is a very talented artist. This mask will have a prominent place in my house and will be greatly admired by everyone who lays eyes on it. There are scores of jaguar warriors out there created by some very talented artists. I have another jaguar warrior mask, which I also love, but this mask is more dramatic and compelling. When I saw it, I had to have it. Kudos to a skillful and talented carver!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose suffers from a rare facial nerve paralysis and is currently treating the condition with physical therapy.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

Jose's work helps generate employment opportunities for those in his community. With the sales from NOVICA, he can employ other artisans and help change the lives of his workers.

Jose hires several people in his community which provides them with a stable income for supporting their families.
