Details

Jesus and Roxana Hernandez handcraft this lovely Mexican alebrije hummingbird of copal wood. Each alebrije is unique, with the artisans using the natural shape of the copal wood to help determine the final form of the carving. With dark red and blue plumage tipped in golden yellow, it will delight you with all the hand-painted details. The bird has an unobtrusive hook on its back for easy hanging, and the wings and tail are removable for convenient shipping. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

I do appreciate these artists who create the Oaxacan detail techniques of painting and carving. This is a great example of how that is done. I will look forward to collecting more from these artisans!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Roxana has flourished by continuing to use traditional techniques in her alebrije art and continues to pass down her craft to her grandchildren, as her elders had passed down to her.

Roxana has been awarded 2nd place in the 2018 State Wood Carvings Contest as well as the 2015 Grand Master Award for the best Artisan Heritage piece of Mexico.

They financially support all four of their children through school so that they may have better opportunities in their future careers.

Roxana has been able to build her workshop over the years and now gives work to other artisans in her community.

Jesus and Roxana are both incredibly dedicated parents and financially support their four children together.

This artist shows a lot of talent or potential and is in their late teens or twenties.
