Mexican artisans Pablo and Lucy Mendez carve and paint by hand a beautiful sculpture of a hummingbird feeding from the center of a lotus flower. The artisans use vibrant blues that transition into aqua and green for the flower and adorn the hummingbird with a kaleidoscope of color, using color contrasts to meticulously detail the bird's feathers. Made from copal wood, the pieces of the sculpture are removable, and, if disassembled for shipping, can be easily reassembled.
Pablo’s profits from the alebrij sculptures he creates for NOVICA allow him to create and financially support a healthy life for his wife and two children.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Lucy's income allows her to provide a necessary basic education to their children in their home.
Pablo won 2nd Place in the Carved Wood Contest in the Mexican state of Oaxaca.
Lucy financially supports their two children.
