Description

Tarahumara Hand Carved Wooden Fish - Primitive Folk Art

Indigenous to northwestern Mexico, theTarahumara live in the caves and canyons of the Sierra Madre Occidental and rely heavily on the barter of handmade goods in exchange for food and other necessities. These pine bark tourist carvings are most likely handcrafted by Tarahumara male children. They hone their woodworking skills at a young age to prepare for adult life

Measures approximately  11 1/4 ‘ long x 1 1/4” wide x 2 1/2” high

True vintage - purchased in the 1970’s in Mexico - normal wear associated with a vintage age.

The Rarámuri or Tarahumara are a Native American people of northwestern Mexico who are renowned for their long-distance running ability. In their language, the term rarámuri refers specifically to the men, women are referred to as mukí (individually) and as omugí or igómale (collectively).

Originally inhabitants of much of the state of Chihuahua, the Rarámuri retreated to the high sierras and canyons such as the Copper Canyon in the Sierra Madre Occidental on the arrival of Spanish explorers in the 16th century. The area of the Sierra Madre Occidental which they now inhabit is often called the Sierra Tarahumara because of their presence.

Tedious but Important General Information: Our home is non-smoking. While I do my best to describe any scents, odors or potential allergens, my items are pre-owned. This may pose a problem for the exquisitely sensitive or very allergic...please keep this in mind before buying.  No returns on shoes, hats or other clothing, so please check all measurements carefully.   

I sell many Vintage items—please remember that Vintage means they have almost always been used/owned by someone, and may have a few flaws. I do my best to point these out, so please check all pictures closely.  Remember VINTAGE means they are not making these any more, and you are buying something unique!
