This prickly character is so clever. I bought one for a gift...then had to have one for myself. Thank you to the fun artist!
Beautiful Bird 2
Both hummingbirds I purchased are wonderful. Some brief instructions would have been helpful (to select which wings went into which hole in what order), but I checked the photo and acted accordingly and it looks great.
It is much taller than I thought it would be. I bought it for my nephew who loves skateboarding. He even helped the city design a old skateboard park that the city was redoing.
Zeny and Reyna Handcrafted alebrije sculptures
"When she told us this we felt a great sense of satisfaction, we had no idea how much we could help someone – a child – through our art."

Bamboo Root and Wood Captain Duck Sculpture in Blue, "Captain Duck in Blue"$25.99
Ready to navigate the open waters, this charming duck wears a blue and white captain's outfit and hat. Balinese artisan Susi Susanti carves this duck from the naturally curvy shape of bamboo root with a head made from acacia wood. The duck's head is given a natural finish.
Artisan Crafted Blue Wood Skull Figurine from Mexico, "Blue Death"$54.99
Mexico's Day of the Dead festivities are unlike any other country's, but skulls are part of the national shared imagery and are a favorite subject for artisans all year. After this hand carved copal wood skull from Jesus and Roxana Hernandez of the Mexican state of Oaxaca is covered in navy blue paint with tiny sky blue dots, it is further decorated on the tops and sides with circles containing geometric figures and curving lines. Yellow, black, green, purple, and pink tones are utilized to hand paint the fanciful designs. Around the blackened eye sockets are outlines in yellow and red; the nasal cavity is delineated in purple. Two straight rows of white teeth give the skull a sober expression.
Mexican Alebrije Cat Sculpture, "Playful Blue Kitten"
A whimsical blue kitten romps and plays. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful cat. These fanciful sculptures are a traditional folk art in Oaxaca, once based on twenty totems but today representing all kinds of animals. They take their name from a Calo gypsy word for "something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic."
Because each alebrije is an individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.
