Dances in some villages in Guerrero make use of canes as part of the ritual, and figures using canes can be seen in preHispanic art. This stunning decorative cane with rich details is by the highly skilled woodcarver, Jesús Castro, who works in the tiny town of San Francisco, Guerrero. He works only sporadically, so acquiring his work is unpredictable.
