Biography   Felipe Archuleta


Born in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico, his Spanish heritage exposed him to "bulto" making, the shaping of wooden religious figures used in shrines. In 1967, he launched this as a career in his small adobe house in Tesuque. He works in wood, elm or cottonwood, and often employs wood filler to give his objects more body. Although his tradition is from the "santeros," makers of saints, his interest is primarily small animals of which he has produced dozens of all sizes--pigs, cats, giraffes and cougars. They are not literal renditions but are intended to embody the untamed qualities of the animal world.
