Details

This little dragon alebrije hand carved from copal wood puts on quite a show, with wings outspread and fire shooting from its mouth. It is as beautiful as it is dramatic, fuchsia with multicolored dot and circle motifs painstakingly hand painted across its body. This alebrije is handcrafted by artisans Zeny and Reyna of Mexico. The dragon's small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

Each alebrije is unique, as the artist works with the individual shape of each specific copal branch to determine the final design.

The Cat of the Sun is even more beautiful than the photos. He looks terrific next to The Cat of the Moon and Water.
