Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: La Puerta al Mictlān / The Door to Mictlān
- 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 great example of Izzy’s imaginative and very fine work. It is a scene in which a brave man challenges the watcher of Mictlan to recover the soul of his beloved. The man has his own removable mask and rides a flying dragonfly like alebrije. Mictlān is the underworld of Aztec mythology and part of the afterlife. It almost has a Tim Burton like feel to it with so much detail. This piece features a removable mask and basket that holds one of the “bad ” children. It also features articulating arms.
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.
