Patzcuaro and the State of Michoacan: Salvador Tera and sons wood sculpture

Most of the wood carvers around the Patzcuaro area focus on masks but years ago Salvador Tera broke the Tocuaro tradition and started his wood sculpture business and his sons are following in his footsteps. Without knowing the full family history I assume Salvador is related to Felipe Horta Tera, a famous mask maker and son of Juan Horta. Much of Salvador's work is church commission and I've heard he has a piece in the Vatican.
