Mexican Laquer Dish done by Maestro
A beautiful, peaceful image of a vieja attending her cook pot on a bonfire under the stars is the enchantment of this Mexican laquerware from Patzcuaro, Michoacan.
Artist Mario Augustine Gaspar is a maestro in his artform, He uses real gold paint for the border/stars, and his delicate, scrolling brush style lends a tactile aliveness to the landscape, with shimmering details that bring the viewer a sense of both verisimilitude and the mystical.
*Note some tiny flaws on right & left side rim.
