Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: Cemiztli (Puma Cat) Mask

$245.00- Collector Price

We are fortunate to have several new pieces in stock and ready to ship from premier paper artist Izzy Morales. Per the artist, “a decorative and utilitarian mask inspired by the pre-Hispanic “miztli” a Nahuatl word for puma. It bears a flowery third eye on its forehead and a pair of claws emerge from its jaw.

Cartonería is a traditional Mexican technique that uses paper and paste as its main ingredients, as well as wire structures, natural fibers, acrylic paint, and a matte lacquer finish. Izzy Morales from Guanajuato is an amazing talent in the field of traditional paper alebrijes and he has developed a wild imaginative modern style all his own. He has been working with paper art since he was 6 years old. Now in his early thirties, he competes in national competitions with his award-winning work. These pieces are highly labor-intensive and he works exclusively on one of kind fine art wonders rather than taking a mass-produced commercial approach. It has paid off for him and he has developed into a well-respected artist nationally.
