- 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 inspired by the tradition of the day of the dead, it is a skeleton decorated and dressed in a sad little devil costume, the character is sitting on a wooden chair, surrounded by black butterflies, and holding a large bouquet of cempasuchil (Mexican marigold) flowers. Also, a lighted candle on the head symbolizes the eternal light that guides the spirits of our dead. “And here I am, like every year, patiently waiting for your arrival, I brought your favorite flowers, and despite the death that always surrounds me, I will bring an eternal light on for you … ”
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.
