Beautiful Alebrije Piece
My wife surprised me with this stunning Alebrije hummingbird. The artwork is detailed and the colors are brilliant. It will be a prized part of my collection.
The paint is bright and lively, bringing a good bit of whimsy to a generally unaccommodating narrow space of wall between two kitchen windows. It goes a long way toward me being able to convince myself that I need an entire collection.
Love The Hummingbird Sculptures
I have 6-7 of these beautiful and absolutely adore each of them. The hummers almost look like they could fly away and the flowers are very realistic looking. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for wonderful decor for their home.
