Details

A playful hummingbird seeks out the sweet nectar of flowers 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 Calo 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. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

"Beautiful and adjustable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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? And maybe beaks of different lengths and angles. 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!

"Brings a smile every day!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I gave this beautiful little bird to my mom for Christmas. It is so intricate, colorful, and adorable we chuckled the whole time we were putting it together because it is just so sweet. I chose the green one because we had the good fortune to see a giant hummingbird while we were in Peru. I bought two others from the same artists because I loved this one so much.

"Beautiful Bird 2"

Both hummingbirds I purchased are wonderful. Some brief instructions would have been helpful (to select which wings went into which hole in what order), but I checked the photo and acted accordingly and it looks great.
