ABOUT THIS OCUMICHO CERAMIC PIECE

This Clay Bus 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 bus portrays the activity of everyday life in the Mexican countryside. 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 added a woman placing a hen at the luggage area. She is carrying her son in a rebozo (shawl) like many indigenous woman do. This  image is a portray and an homage of the non stopping work of women in Mexico.

The written legend on the side of the bus says "Transporte publico" can be translated as public transport.
