A Guitar like no other
This is a beautiful piece of workmanship. a gift for my husband to hang in our Music Room. He loved it. The detail and the colors are so vibrant. My son said it reminded him of the guitars in the movie COCO. What a beautiful piece of art. The artist truly has a gift from God for their creativity and love that went into this Guitar. God bless the artist.
A special holiday decoration
This is a very festive and detailed piece. its about 7 tall so its easy to find a spot to display it. The artist did an exceptional job on this piece.
This came to us all the way from Thailand in perfect shape and absolutely gorgeous. I have wanted one for years, and this is the perfect size. I can easily put a candle or incense on the landing. It is truly a work of art and unique, guests always comment favorably.

Alebrijes are a fairly recent Mexican art form, attributed to Pedro Linares. Unconscious due to illness in 1936, he was presumed near death and yet his dreams were extremely vivid. He tells of a place where all was peaceful and quiet until all of a sudden there appeared a lion with an eagle's head, a rooster with bull's horns and a donkey with butterfly wings. They kept screeching "alebrije, alebrije!" and Pedro began running away. He encountered a man who told him it was not yet his time to be there are and he should continue running towards the exit. In this dream Pedro climbed out of a window and regained consciousness.
