Details

A playful hummingbird soars skyward in an alebrije sculpture designed to hang from the ceiling. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful alebrije. 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 Caló gypsy word for "something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic."

Includes a thread for hanging.

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly.

"A one of a kind gift for a cherished friend."

Unique piece of artwork that was perfect for a dear friend who collects hummingbirds and needed a special addition to them. I am amazed at how wonderfully made this is made and the true appearance of being a bird in flight.

"Thank you for this treasure"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. When I bought this, it was the last one. I didn't write a review then....I did see that more were available. I had this for a while - saving to give my husband as a gift. The bird hangs from the ceiling and catches the light so beautifully. I have been an admirer of Zeny's work since he first began. I had a video of his work that I showed my art students. Zeny and Reyna are gifted artists. I have given many of Zeny's and Reyna's creations as gifts to friends and family.

"wasnt put together and i broke it trying"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

you really should tell people that they have to actually assemble this piece and maybe give instructions on how to do that! I received this as a present and couldnt understand what it was or how to put it together. Some assembly required is putting it mildly! I had to search on your web site but couldnt find it since its out of stock - had to go into my husbands account to find the order and see a picture. i broke one of the wings trying to FINISH CREATING the piece! not a good experience AT ALL

"I LOVE this hummer"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just hung this beauty in my office and cannot stop looking at it. I was surprised and delighted when I unwrapped the package and discovered that it came in pieces for me to assemble. I used a firm but delicate touch to insert each feather into the body, and what resulted was a charming and colorful creature needing only to be suspended in the perfect location. I am thoroughly mesmerized by this lovely and whimsical work of art.

"Bright with excellent detail"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The hummingbird is beautiful. The color on the alebrije is a very close match to the pictures on the website, and the detail on the figure is incredibly intricate. When I ordered, I was really worried about this getting broken in shipping, but it was shipped flat with lots of bubble wrap and was very well packed. The assembly itself is very, very simple. I love it. Its going to make a great gift.

Thank you Zeny and Reyna! Lucky me... I originally ordered this as a gift for a friend, but realized it would not arrive in time. He got a different Oaxacan Alebrije turtle and I get to keep this magical one made by Zeny (a turtle I have always admired).
