Mexican Hands Make Oscar Statue

Hoy, Gisela Orozco Posted: Feb 28, 2010

CHICAGO--Mexican hands play a leading role in the making of Oscar, one of Hollywoods most sought after trophies, according to the Spanish daily Hoy.

Workers at R.S Owens & Company in Chicago have been crafting the golden statue for almost three decades. The shape, uniqueness and shine of Oscar are the responsibility of a small team of employees from Mexican states like Michoacan and Guerrero. Nothing is mechanical about the way the golden statue is made, which makes the work even more specialized, according to the daily. Oscar has a special meaning, because he requires more attention, detail and care, said Alvaro Landa, an immigrant from Guerrero who polishes it.
