Details

Holy Brother Peter, from the Fransiscan Order, walked the streets of Antigua de Guatemala with a bell in one hand, a sling bag filled with bread for the hungry, and his walking staff in his other hand. Much beloved, he was admired for helping those in need and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2002. "It's not easy to hand-carve the statuette of our Holy Brother Peter, but now that I see the finished piece I'm filled with satisfaction," confides Jose Canil Ramos. "I enjoy sculpting with cedar wood because there's no need to use paints; the finished piece is very natural and beautiful."

I fell in love with this piece at first sight, but it was sold out. After a couple of months in my wish list I received a notification and immediately bought it. The color is breathtaking as the craftsmanship. Felicidades y gracias José ¡Eres un mago!

I purchased one for myself and another for my sisters-in-law. Gracefully carved with excellent color choices. I feel a tad guilty as I ve depleted much of Jocara s available inventory!

This jaguar is approachable with a sweetly curious expression. An example of Jose Canil Ramos varied talent.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose suffers from a rare facial nerve paralysis and is currently treating the condition with physical therapy.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

Jose's work helps generate employment opportunities for those in his community. With the sales from NOVICA, he can employ other artisans and help change the lives of his workers.

Jose hires several people in his community which provides them with a stable income for supporting their families.
