Folk Art from Michoacán
Every day of the year in Mexico ceremonial folk art is used to celebrate religious events. Intended for use in ritual and celebration, these works embody and proclaim the energetic spirit that infuses much of the folk art of Mexico.
The category “folk art" on this page includes whimsical painted clay figures from Ocumicho, wooden items made with small metal milagros, as well as examples of popular art that reflect the Mexican people’s adoration of Frida Kahlo and the Virgin of Guadalupe. We also carry a variety of amazing Calaca or skeleton art which is often associated with Day of the Dead. Please look at the Calaca Art category for those. Our selection is constantly changing, so check back with us often, and let us know if you are looking for something in particular.
