Colorful Guatemalan Wooden Animal Heads

Colorful Guatemalan Wooden Animal Heads

As a graphic designer I can only have admiration for the excellent handling of color, texture, patterns and shapes found in Guatemala’s indigenous art. Come on, just look at the intricate use of colors, dots, and forms in the wooden animal heads above; it is amazing that so many different elements can be in complete harmony as a whole.

Next time you visit Guatemala, make sure your take home a piece of the chaotic, harmonious and colorful Guatemala.

  • Absolutely brilliant pattern and use of color. Love the way artists are apprenticed into becoming artists. Sitting beside the master learning dot by dot, color by color.

    We got a beautiful dog head in Chichi last trip. Wish we’d gotten more, for gifts.
