Amazing details - Such artistry!
Thank you Claudio! I was delighted to get this wonderful little bull -- which I am turning into a Holiday ornament for my tree. He is such a colorful little fellow and so beautifully painted. I have purchased many sets of ornaments from Claudio - to share with friends... so am very happy to have one very unique ornament just for me.
If it s hot out or you feel a hot flash coming on, you can t beat this pretty fan. I bought some for friends too.
I love these fans and have been stylishly saved from many a hot flash. I bought some for friends too. Well made and beautiful.

Hot Pink Bull Alebrije Key Chain from Mexico, "Pink Bull"$19.99
This delightful key fob is hand crafted by Claudio Ojeda in Mexico. The bull is carved from copal wood and painted in hot pink and a colorful array of patterns and shapes. The wood figurine adorns a stainless steel key ring. The artisan signs his pieces with the initials "T.C.", which represent his initial "C" preceded by his mother Teresita's initial "T". Claudio learned the art of crafting alebrijes from his mother.
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 shouted "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.
