When he was confined to bed with a mysterious illness for several months in 1947, Isidoro improved his carving and learned how to make the wooden masks then worn at Carnaval and other fiestas. ) In the ensuing years Isidoro would sometimes give his mother carvings of circus performers to sell in the market in Oaxaca. These carvings were made from zompantle (Erythrina coralloides), the wood that Isidoro still uses for most of his pieces. In 1958 Isidoro’s woodworking skills helped him obtain a job making ox-carts in a workshop in the city of Oaxaca.

They are cheaper than rugs and more portable than pottery. The carvings fit in well with a “southwestern” style of home design that has been popular in parts of the United States since the late 1980s. The range in prices of carvings makes them suitable purchases for tourists seeking inexpensive souvenirs, collectors looking for one-of-a-kind items, and merchants stocking shops. Perhaps because of the diversity of the carvings, local store owners sometimes say that they appeal to a wider variety of customers than any other craft.

He took advantage of his connections to get jobs for men from San Martín in fonart offices in Mexico City and other parts of the country. Isidoro’s position at the buying center and ties with the government led a number of men in San Martín to take up wood carving. They sold pieces to Isidoro and learned the ins and outs of the artisan world by working for fonart. Men from San Martín who began carving at this time include such successful contemporary artisans as Epifanio Fuentes (Isidoro’s brother-in-law), Abad Xuana, Justo Xuana, Coindo Melchor, and Margarito Melchor.
