Wikipedia: Josefina Aguilar is a famous Mexican folk artist from Ocotlán de Morelos, Oaxaca. Josefina was mentored by her mother (Isaura Alcantara Díaz and grandmother. She began learning her craft from them when she was six years old. She is best known for her small clay figurines, called muñecas (dolls), an art form she learned from her mother Isaura Aguilar. Aguilar uses red clay to create depictions of everyday village activities, religious and folkloric scenes. I have read that she is now blind and no longer producing her art work.

I have several other Native Mexican Art items on Etsy

Many of my items are vintage or antique and I will note if there is something beyond normal wear.
