Details

Standing in a curious posture with head tilted as if afraid of being discovered, a deer saxophonist prepares to play a solo. The Xuana Fabian Family artisans create this imaginative alebrije sculpture, carving it by hand of copal wood. The grey deer is hand-painted.

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.
