Details

"The stories that my grandfather used to tell me inspired 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 mask 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. The ears and antlers are disassembled for shipping.

"Serene Madonna and Child"

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!

This jaguar is approachable with a sweetly curious expression. An example of Jose Canil Ramos varied talent.

"Extraordinary Wall Panels"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This beautiful piece is complimented by another wooden wall panel, Virgen de Guadalupe. Beautiful colors and true carved craftsmanship. I hope Jocara creates other santos (like San José) as I have examples of all of his saints and angels. My house looks like the Vatican! Great artworks!

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.
