Details

With paws outstretched, a quirk of her striped tail, and a sweet expression on her face, this curious cat alebrije wood figurine is certain to capture your heart. Handcrafted from copal wood by Mexican artisans Pablo and Lucy Mendez, the little cat is hand-painted shades of green with black and gold accents. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

As alebrije artisans interpret the natural curves of each copal branch to help determine the final design, each alebrije sculpture can have unique variations.

"Intricate hand-painted details adorn every surface."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Delightful! This ladybug is a beloved addition to our growing family collection of Novica items. The website photos do not fully capture the exquisite beauty of extraordinary tiny hand-painted details. Hand carved and painted in rich colors, most surfaces are adorned with hundreds of tiny hand-painted silver dots. The underside is also carved and hand-painted, and includes the artists signatures.
