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!
I absolutely love this colorful rabbit. It is beautifully carved by the artist. I have it prominently displayed in our family room where it is admired. I would highly recommend this carving to others.
This delicate piece arrived lovingly packed and in perfect condition. The art is extraordinary. I love it. Thank you

"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."

Copal Wood Dragon Alebrije Sculpture in Red and Orange, "Mexican Dragon in Red"
A fire-breathing dragon in colors of orange and red spreads its wings in this Mexican sculpture, making a charming addition to any home. Mexican couple Zeny and Reyna celebrate the artistic traditions of their country, crafting the dragon from copal wood and maguey plant fibers in the style of sculptures, adding beautiful hand-painted motifs. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.
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.
Artisan Crafted Blue Wood Frog Figurine Sculpture, "Blue Dancing Frog"
This dancing frog, all in blue, captivates with the vibrancy of Mexican artistry. Zeny and Reyna transform a branch of the copal tree into the whimsical creature and paint it by hand in the style of Oaxaca's sculptures.
Wood Giraffe Figurine Sculpture Artisan Crafted in Mexico, "My Curious Giraffe"
A curious little giraffe looks to the heavens in this endearing copal wood figurine from Mexico. Zeny and Reyna carve the sculpture by hand and paint it with exquisite detail. The giraffe's tail is braided with maguey fibers, which are somewhat coarse since they are not treated. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.
