From the handicrafts mecca that is Tlaquepaque, Mexico, comes this vibrant hand-painted skull by Maria and Esteban. Dark eyebrows frame a smiling cerulean face while small maize-colored flowers and festive peacocks in tangerine and fuchsia adorn the back and sides. Bold explosions of color characterize Mexican folklore, and this decorative skull is an excellent example of this tradition.
Maria has six sons, two of which are being financially supported by the income Maria makes at NOVICA.
Through personal dedication and increased access to the global market that Novica provides, Esteban has been able to increase his sales exponentially since he first started working with NOVICA. His unique style and will to constantly learn has allowed Esteban to continue moving on up.
Maria’s children use traditional techniques taught by her, her husband, and elder members of the community to create crafts out of authentic culturally significant materials.
Esteban’s profits from the artwork he makes for NOVICA allows him to create and financially support a healthy life for his wife and seven children.
My daughter has sort of a thing about sculls. This one is so joyous. It has beautiful symbols, flora and fauna. The colors glow. I have to wait awhile for her birthday, but I wanted to be sure to get it. What a delightful piece of art.
