Rich in beauty and originality, Mexican folk art has roots that extend back to ancient times. This collection of designs, adapted by illustrator Marty Noble from authentic native Mexican works, provides excellent examples of folk art from various regions of Mexico.
Among the 30 detailed line drawings is a 19th century paper cut (papel picado) design of the Sacred Heart, along with water birds on earthenware from the state of Jalisco, religious figures from a Metepec ceramic candlestick, polychrome-painted earthenware from Guadalajara and jaguars on a lacquered chest from Guerrero.
