Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: Devil Doll with Stand
- Collector Price
We are fortunate to have several new pieces in stock and ready to ship from premier paper artist Izzy Morales. This piece is a prime example of Izzy’s imaginative and very fine work. This doll based on the traditional Mexican “pepitos” and is a little tongue-in-cheek. It has articulated arms and legs, including chicken leg, cotton string tie, removable mask, and movable wings. He has a king with three faces painted on his chest (a reference to the three wise men), which points to the star that will guide him to the “messiah” When opening the small door on his chest, a nativity scene is observed Maria, José and the baby Jesus. There is also a cherub at the top and a dark devil at the rear. The devil holds a cane with 3 tangerines representing the festive season. The tail is made of fabric and stuffing. It also has its own stand for display. It has a Tim Burton-like feel to it with so much detail.
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.
