Details

Claudio Ojeda brings a curious monkey to life in alebrije form. He carves it from copal wood and hand-paints it with a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns in teal, purple, saffron yellow, melon pink. The tail is removable for safe and easy shipping.

The Mexican artisan learned to craft alebrijes as a young child from his mother. His work still embodies her motto - bring the alebrijes to life by painting them with love and care.

This little Armadillo is precious! The detail is meticulous and it even has a dotted tummy. I had planned to give it for a gift but cannot part with it. What an incredibly talented artist Claudio is!

These alebrije ornaments are beautiful. I was so excited to receive them and put their wings on. The colors and the craftsmanship are what I expect from Novica. Claudio Ojeda is a wonderful artist indeed. Thank you! I think they will grace not only my Christmas tree but my home, long after the tree is down.
