The technique of photo-sculpture exemplified in the work offered here is uniquely Mexican.  It began in the Distrito Federal in the 1930s to commemorate significant events in the lives of Mexican and Mexican American families.  Images of individuals are captured, cut, and  shaped to fit on a thin wooden sculpture with a dimensional impact that is very lifelike.  The sculptures are generally housed in simple wooden frames between two panes of glass and incorporate the mediums of photography, painting, and sculpture.
