We are putting new treasures of Mexican and Native American Indian antiques, art, and folk art into the Pocas Cosas website!
This is an exquisite Mexican straw-art (popote art or popotillo) scene of the Main Cathedral in Mexico City. Popote art involves creating scenes using thousands of minute pieces of dyed straw or grass, popote in Spanish. This piece was created, c. 1920, by the famous popotillo artist, Gabriel Olay (G Olay). This is a phenomenal piece of Mexican vintage fine/folk art!
