Felix Lopez: Santos Maker – New Mexico, USA
The Fowler Museum produced this video of Felix in 2011. There is a link to the video in Felix’s bio page, but it is easy to miss. It is being added to the blog to highlight this wonderful video.
“Felix Lopez is an outstanding santero (santos carver) who lives and works in Espanola near Santa Fe, New Mexico. In this video, Lopez talks about how he became a carver, his artistic and aesthetic considerations while creating a santos figure, and what it means to him to be a creator of devotional objects.” Fowler Museum introduction to video.
