Eustolia González Mateos (San Bartolo Coyotepec)

Eustolia creates a spectrum of well-formed and decorated miniature animals and human figures. Her repertoire includes armadillos, turtles, frogs, dolphins, whales, elephants, pigs, burros and giraffes. In addition, she makes small female figures.  Some miniatures are prepared with metal loops to be turned into earrings.  Little known by the public in her own right, Eustolia typically sells her pieces for re-sale to merchants with stands in the local market.  She and her daughter Nancy collaborate in this work.
