Julia Fuentes Multicolor OwlThis owl is a great example of the work of the very talented Julia Fuentes and her husband Jose Juan. Julia is part of the world renowned Fuentes Family, including Epifanio Fuentes, Zeny Fuentes and Efrain Fuentes. Julia Fuentes actually used to do the painting on her brother Zeny's pieces, until branching out on her own just a few years ago. In my opinion, Julia has surpassed her brothers in her talent in the painting of these wood carvings. Julia actually studied at Bellas Artes... a famous art institution in Mexico! Wow! We were amazed at the beauty of her pieces when we first saw them, and are so excited to be able to share them with the world. They never disappoint, and always seem to increase in beauty and detail.
