In February of this year, San Antonio was host to several dignitaries from our sister city: Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China.
The city commissioned Carlos to create a gift for the Mayor of Wuxi, to represent San Antonio and celebrate the friendship between the two cities. Carlos designed and sculpted a Faux Bois tree section, with an image of the Alamo carved into the surface. Below the Alamo is a metal plaque bearing the inscription:
San Antonio -- Wuxi
February 16, 2012
The gift is displayed on a stand that was handmade by another local artisan, using locally sourced materials.
