"Masterful Jaguar"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this sculpture for my wifes birthday, and she loves it! Jose Canil Ramos is an extremely talented artist. This piece is even more magnificent in person. We all love this sculpture, very meticulously created and beautifully rendered. This is our second piece from this artist, and we are awed by his talent.

I fell in love with this piece at first sight, but it was sold out. After a couple of months in my wish list I received a notification and immediately bought it. The color is breathtaking as the craftsmanship. Felicidades y gracias José ¡Eres un mago!

I purchased one for myself and another for my sisters-in-law. Gracefully carved with excellent color choices. I feel a tad guilty as I ve depleted much of Jocara s available inventory!

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.
