"The stories that my grandfather used to tell me inspired me to create this sculpture," explains Guatemalan carver Jose Canil Ramos. "To the Maya people, the deer is the most intelligent creature of all, and represents the purity of the forests." Canil carves the mask by hand from pinewood and paints it with extraordinary artistry. Before finishing the piece, he applies a mixture of soot and water to achieve an antique and weathered illusion. The ears and antlers are disassembled for shipping.

"Another Beautiful Mask by Jose Canil Ramos"

This mask is absolutely gorgeous. It is my new favorite mask. (The photograph doesn?t do it justice. The mask is a much lighter orange than what is shown). I now have a collection of six of the artist?s masks and I love them all.

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
