Jose Caancan

A pair of sculptures of a boy and a girl

Undated

Wood

31.7 x 10 x 10 cm (12 1/2 x 4 x 4 in)

Quick Overview

Hailing from Paete, Laguna, Jose Caancan became a student of Jose Rizal for one year during his incarceration in Dapitan. In this delightful pair of sculptures from an American collection, Caancan carves to minute detail the intricate features and garb of two children. The folds and embrodery detail on their clothing, the young girl’s basket of fruits, their anatomical precision right down to their light-footed gaits as if caught in mid-step, and the delicate curiosity in their facial expressions show the artist’s consummate technical skill.
