WOODCARVED

Oaxacan artists are known for many varieties of wooden toys. They range from tiny carved and painted human and animal figures and masks, to carved wooden hand coordination games (such as “baleros,” cylinders that must be caught on a handle to which they are tethered by string), to elaborately carved and painted carousels and ferris wheels.
