$695: Stunning turtle by artist Jesus Sosa Santiago. Jesus is only 20 years old and already is creating superb quality wood carvings. He started carving when he was 12 and credits his brother in law, Agustin Cruz Prudencio for influencing and perfecting his style. The quality of his <strong>painting</strong> is <strong>impressive</strong>…so detailed, precise and clean. The coloring very attractive. A new Oaxacan artist to follow closely!
