"Beautiful Armadillo Alebrije"

This armadillo alebrije lit me up the moment I received it. It immediately became the catalyst for my growing interest in understanding the meaning of each alebrije in respect to culture and to the animal being represented, and inspired me to begin a small collection of these gorgeous works of art. The armadillo Alebrije made by Claudio Ojedo is in a playful repose, cheerful, and beautifully constructed. While I have not used the keychain, it would also be perfect for someone who wants to take this work of art “on the go.”

"Bright Owl"

This was a checkout deal that maybe would end up decorating a gift bag and maybe not. It was too good to decorate a bag so I kept it. I love the fine details painted on the back. It would also make a great tree ornament. Thank you Claudio for your beautiful work.

"Another addition to a critter collection"

This artist really captured the essence of the real thing. It looks like one of the chameleons photographed by the biology field researcher who will be delighted when she receives it on her birthday.
