Details

Hovering on whirring wings, a whimsical hummingbird seeks out the sweet nectar of flowers. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful alebrije painted orange, red, yellow, green, white and black. 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 Caló gypsy word for "something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic."

Includes a thread for hanging.

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly.

"Hummingbird Love"

We live in an area where we have Hummingbirds all year round. This little guy is hanging out in an unexpected place and often greeted with surprise followed by admiration. He's beautiful.

"Beautiful and adjustable!"

I have seen a great many works of art, and your hummingbirds are some of the prettiest. They make me smile each time I see them, and draw constant compliments. I have the blue, green, purple and "colorful" ones and would love to see more: maybe bright yellow, light blue, lilac, gray, copper? And with beaks at different angles and of different lengths? I have moved the wings so some have big feathers in front, others in back or in the middle. They hang from my office ceiling, all at different heights. Please take care of the copal trees, and thank you for creating such beautiful things!

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!
