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.

"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.

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
