Isaias Alejandro Morales Delgado: The Black Macuahuitl: Orlumbus Cotzomi
$695.00 - Collector Price
Times have gotten hard very quickly for the artists in Mexico. We continue to promote pieces directly as a way to help.
We have another new work from premier paper artist Izzy Morales. Izzy’s story of this fantastical work is as follows, “Orlumbus Cotzomi, a native of the swampy and forbidden lands south of the new continent, is self-proclaimed as “The black macuahuitl” He is an assassin with peculiarly developed qualities, wandering and displaced, drunk most of the time, dangerous and impulsive, he is protected by different mystical forces, mainly related to ancient deities of nature and war.” The macuahuitl relates to an ancient Aztec wooden club weapon that featured obsidian blades. This piece features a removable mask and mantis-like moving arms. Watch a video to get a better sense of the piece.
Really zoom into this, there is so much detail and the pictures never do the work justice. This is exclusively available direct from the artist and ships DHL international within 3-5 business days. The price of shipping is included.
An exciting new artist for us. A few years ago we introduced you to the mechanical folk art of Josue Eleazar Castro. Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to the work of Izzy Morales from Guanajuato. He 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 like Josue, 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. This is exclusively available direct from the artist and ships DHL international within 3-5 business days. The price of shipping is included. Don’t miss out as this is also available at his gallery in Mexico and it is first-come, first-serve.
