Train Clay Sculpture crafted in Ocumicho Michoacan Mexican Folk Art & Pottery
ABOUT THIS OCUMICHO CERAMIC PIECE
This Clay train is an authentic piece of Mexican Folk art crafted in Ocumicho, Michoacán. A place world famous for the quality of its pottery and surreal creations such as devils and other fantastic creatures. This piece in particular was crafted by the talented Sabina Elías, a pottery master of Mexican folk art.
The train is composed by four wagons and 1 cart. You can see that the artist spent time adding each figure its own personality & style. Only a good observer and a dedicated artist like Sabina can do this. At the top of the bus she placed several characters, such as a man with a backpack, a girl, a boy and one of Ocumicho's famous devils.
The train destination "Queretaro" is written on the main wagon.
