Featured Reviews on Fish Sculpture
Brilliant choice of colors and beautiful detailing. These sculptures require incredible dexterity and patience. I now possess three of Manuel Cruz? works.
One piece in a small collection we now proudly own
Small but beautifully formed with vibrant colours. Eye catching and a talking point. An unusual ornament which now graces the shelf of our display unit together with other animals in the polymer clay purchased from the same artist.

Hand-Carved Wood Gourami Fish Figurine from Bali, "Gourami Fish"$34.99

12-inch Hand Carved and Painted Alebrije Fish Sculpture, "Zapotec Fish"$369.99
A rotund fish with big eyes swims sinuously in cool rivers. Colorful motifs from Zapotec art and ancient temples cover the body and fins. By Manuel Cruz, this is a beautiful example of Mexico's art. The image is carved by hand of copal wood in the style of Oaxaca and meticulously painted by hand with tiny brushes. The finer details are created using a maguey thorn instead of a brush.
The alebrije tradition originated with Mexico City artisan Pedro Linares (1906-1992). When he was 30, he became ill and fell into a coma. While he was unconscious, he dreamed he was caught between the land of the living and the dead, a place populated with creatures whose body parts belonged to different animals. The beings repeatedly cried, "Alebrije!" When he was well, Linares recreated these fanciful figures in papier mache. His work became famous and inspired artisans in the state of Oaxaca, who began crafting alebrijes of wood.
The wood branch dictates the final form, thus size and shapes can vary slightly. Thus, each alebrije is an authentic work of Mexican folk art.
