# Juan Jose Ramos Medrano, "Manimal", unsigned


Priced in Mexican Pesos. 

This was made by the grandson of Candelario Medrano (Juan Jose Ramos Medrano), Santa Cruz de Las Huertas.  The son of his daughter.  

I´m calling this ´manimal, a human face,  a lot of little candelarion people sitting on the back of some imaginary animal..

Thus ´Manimal´.  This measures 6.5" tall and long. 

Very good condition! 

This like most of Candelario and Juan Jose´s works was painted with the Betus, the pine resin coating that turns into a mustard yellow colored finish when fired. 

Candelario Medrano was an illiterate primitive artist from Santa Cruz de las Huertas (between Tonala and Tlaquepaque). He was adopted as a youngster by Julian Acero who was, at the time, the master clay worker in the small town. He was famous for his clay toys. The area was known for making the drain pipes for sewers and roof drains.  Jorge Wilmot (credited with saving the clay industry in the area) encouraged the young Candelario to make something more imaginative from the clay.
