This bark painting was made by Mexican Indians, who have used the process of stripping, boiling, and beating bark with a stone to create the texture for a very long time. The themes of these artworks range from traditional celebrations and animals to more abstract designs. These artworks are often very colorful and focus primarily on traditional folk art subjects.
