I have always been in love with Matryoshkas and the magic of discovery what are they carrying with them. I always felt they would be the perfect canvas to illustrate the jungle and it’s mysteries. A while ago I found the wood mould on a local store and it was the perfect time to go for it.

The first doll is my interpretation of mother earth, following by the fierce Otorongo (Jaguar), the friendly Pelejo (sloth), the sneaky Anaconda and the evasive Bufeo Colorado (Pink dolphin). I didn’t really count how long it took me to paint them, it was probably a week. However, I love the result and it has given me a lot of excitement to start a new one.
