Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: Guardián del Mictlán / Guardian of Mictlán Mask
- Collector Price
We are fortunate to have several new pieces in stock and ready to ship from premier paper artist Izzy Morales. A wonderful wearable mask that is also decorative. Izzy’s masks sell very fast as it is rare to find anything of this quality in the U.S. Per the artist, “Inspired by the pre-Hispanic deity related to death, it has symbols such as the obsidian dagger in the nose, the eyes represent the smoking black mirror, the skull with jaguar skin and a third eye on the forehead, a symbol of awakened vision.”
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.
