This prickly character is so clever. I bought one for a gift...then had to have one for myself. Thank you to the fun artist!
Beautiful Bird 2
Both hummingbirds I purchased are wonderful. Some brief instructions would have been helpful (to select which wings went into which hole in what order), but I checked the photo and acted accordingly and it looks great.
It is much taller than I thought it would be. I bought it for my nephew who loves skateboarding. He even helped the city design a old skateboard park that the city was redoing.

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.
Artisan Crafted Blue Wood Skull Figurine from Mexico, "Blue Death"$54.99
Mexico's Day of the Dead festivities are unlike any other country's, but skulls are part of the national shared imagery and are a favorite subject for artisans all year. After this hand carved copal wood skull from Jesus and Roxana Hernandez of the Mexican state of Oaxaca is covered in navy blue paint with tiny sky blue dots, it is further decorated on the tops and sides with circles containing geometric figures and curving lines. Yellow, black, green, purple, and pink tones are utilized to hand paint the fanciful designs. Around the blackened eye sockets are outlines in yellow and red; the nasal cavity is delineated in purple. Two straight rows of white teeth give the skull a sober expression.
