Carved of copal wood, the majestic form of a swan is depicted in this Mexican alebrije sculpture, making a fantastic addition to your home. Designed by Pablo and Lucy Mendez, the sculpture is hand-painted with intricate paisley motifs in tones of blue. The artisans sign this lovely piece of home decor.

Alebrijes are a fairly recent Mexican art form, attributed to Pedro Linares. Unconscious due to illness in 1936, he was presumed near death and yet his dreams were extremely vivid. He tells of a place where all was peaceful and quiet until all of a sudden there appeared a lion with an eagle's head, a rooster with bull's horns and a donkey with butterfly wings. They kept screeching "alebrije, alebrije!" and Pedro began running away. He encountered a man who told him it was not yet his time to be there are and he should continue running towards the exit. In this dream Pedro climbed out of a window and regained consciousness.
