This a copy of a beautiful Chinese museum piece. I saw and bought some of these at a major museum show of Chinese sculpture in my state. They are stunning.
This was made in Guererro state in Mexico, probably in Ameyetepec. These artists are the same peoples who make the bark paper paintings they sell all over Mexico. They depict the lives the lead and t...
