Rare Manquay Cactus Adam and Eve Folk Art
Everything you look for in an outstanding piece of Folk Art can be found in this charming Adam and Eve. What is most rare is what it is carved from, a Manguay cactus. Very few can carve this plant, after carving I was told it was covered with a sap or resin, then painted. I am not sure of the origin, it is probably from Mexico, there is one carver from New Mexico that works with this cactus. This piece is at least 25 years old. It is it is 6 1/4" tall, 5 1/4" X 4 1/4" base. A choice addition to a collection. An imporant piece of Folk Art.
