Oval Fotoescultura of Old Bald Man

About

This object consists of hand-carved wooden busts with highly detailed carved and painted garment pieces accompanied by enlarged hand-painted photographed of deceased (in most cases) family members. This piece was commissioned from a collective of artisans from early 1920 till late 1980, and were common in Mexican middle class family mantel pieces. These photographs were usually made to remember relatives by keeping alive their memory and presence for all family members to see daily, a kind of “eternal life” object filled with significance and aesthetic sensitivity.
