José de Mora (1642–1724) was a Spanish sculptor.

Mora was born in Baza, the son of the sculptor Bernardo de Mora and pupil of Alonzo Cano. He died in Granada in 1724 and was buried in the Albaicin church. His work can be usefully studied in the eight statues in the Capella del Cardenal. in the Mosque-Cathedral at Córdoba, and in the figures of Saint Bruno and Saint Joseph in the Charterhouse near Granada.
