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.

"Thank you for this treasure"

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.

"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.

"Beautiful and adjustable!"

I have seen a great many works of art, and your hummingbirds are some of the prettiest. They make me smile each time I see them, and draw constant compliments. I have all four colors and would love to see more: maybe bright yellow, light blue, lilac, gray, copper? I have moved the wings so some have big feathers in front, others in back or in the middle. They hang from my office ceiling, all at different heights. Thank you for creating such beautiful things!

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
