Photo sculpture portraits are a well known form of folk art in Mexico. This example is particularly well done because of the fine, three dimensional draping of the sitter's dress as well as the painted and three dimensional jewelry. Circa 1940. Measures 12 1/2" tall and 8 1/4" wide. Base is nicely carved.
