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.

"Beautiful and adjustable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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! Lucky me... I originally ordered this as a gift for a friend, but realized it would not arrive in time. He got a different Oaxacan Alebrije turtle and I get to keep this magical one made by Zeny (a turtle I have always admired).
