Details

Covered with bright flowers, a grinning skull wears a golden crown. Jose Canil crafts a mask to celebrate the Day of the Dead in Guatemala. "The sculpture's bright colors are a reminder that death is nothing more than the beginning of something new," he says. "In the next life, we are all equal and each of us is a king or queen. We will want for nothing."

"Excellent Craftsmanship"

A really wonderful piece of woodwork. Beautifully carved and one of my favorite things from Novica. Jose, I love your work and hope that one day soon the Yellow Maya Jaguar and Parrot Mask will be available again.

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
