Every one loves my 2020 Frog! So creative
Thank you, Marina. This little frog is absolutely ADORABLE! A must have treasure. This was the perfect Christmas present for me -- from my cats (they buy such wonderful things for me). Right now, my frog is standing proudly on the mantle -- but will eventually hang from the ceiling in my office so I can see him more. I assure you, you will not be disappointed if you buy this for yourself -- or for a friend who just needs to smile.
This artist has amazing talent! What intricate artistry! I love this elephant for my collection and I will treasure it always. Thank you to the artist of this piece. I hope that you will read this and know how much I enjoy the elephant that you have made with your heart.

The folk art tradition of alebrijes dates back to the 1930's in Mexico City. A man named Pedro Linares was taken ill, and in his fevered dreams he saw a strange land populated with curious creatures--a donkey with wings, a rooster with bull's horns, and a lion with the head of a dog. The beasts all ran at him, shouting "alebrije! alebrije!". Upon his recovery, Linares began recreating the fantastical creatures he had seen in his dream. The art form gained popularity, and alebrijes are now made of wood as well as papier mache.
