Zapotec Rock Artist

In a remote Indigenous Mexican village you will find a beautiful Zapotec people. Because of their remoteness they haven't had the advantages for earning a living except for their coffee. But not all the people raise coffee.

Shelby Combs a retired teacher and Sheri Burk a missionary gathered some of the people together and proposed teaching them how to paint on rocks and now they sell their products in the resort town of Huatulco when the cruise ships come in.

We will share a little of life in the village and give you a glimpse of the artist who are painting.

In the column to the right scroll all the way to the bottom of page to links with the title of "Lachiguiri artist" to see the artist and their work. We have over sixty artist now painting rocks. I will be adding each artist and their new art work as time allows.

This blog site is edited by Sheri Burk. By clicking on the email envelope you may reach me personally. Hope you enjoy the personal rock you purchased when you stopped through Huatulco Oaxaca Mexico. Remember every dollar and peso goes directly to the person who painted your rock so you have helped one family who lives in this remote village. Thanks
