Details

Working in the tradition of alebrijes, Mexican duo Zeny and Reyna create this cool sculpture of a fox. In a resting position, the sly animal is carved by hand of copal wood. This beautiful creature is diligently painted by hand with intricate motifs in tones of blue and purple.

Alebrijes are a fairly recent Mexican art form, attributed to Pedro Linares. Unconscious due to illness in 1936, he was presumed near death and yet his dreams were extremely vivid. He tells of a place where all was peaceful and quiet until all of a sudden there appeared a lion with an eagle's head, a rooster with bull's horns and a donkey with butterfly wings. They kept screeching "alebrije, alebrije!" and Pedro began running away. He encountered a man who told him it was not yet his time to be there are and he should continue running towards the exit. In this dream Pedro climbed out of a window and regained consciousness.

"Darling cat"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Just returned from Quintana Roo in November. I had been looking for Alebrijes there but they were all too big. Found this darling cat and the size was perfect for my collection. It took awhile to arrive (covid slow downs) but was worth the wait. It was very carefully packed and arrived safely. Will definitely be on the look out for more.

"Even cuter in person"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this as a gift for a friend who is into cats and loves the color purple. This was the perfect choice for her. She seemed to love it. If I had a need for a similar gift, I would not hesitate to buy again.
