Love this beautiful Snoozing Cat

Purchased to go along side a tall giraffe statue. Amazing how the artist created it out of flip flops.
Gift for a dear friend who collects hummingbirds.
I am very pleased with this delicate, hovering hummingbird. The workmanship is superb. It will be a gift for a special friend who collects hummingbirds. I will be proud to give it to her and share with her information about where it came from the artist who created it.

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.
