Details

Wearing bright red lipstick, a whimsical blue cat lifts her tail in greeting. 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."

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

"Another amazing work by Zeny and Reyna"

This little cat is just adorable! Right now she is keeping a friend of mine company (a temporary adoption). The details are amazing. I check frequently to see what is new from Zeny and Reyna.
