Wood Alebrije Figurine Cat in Green from Mexico, "Cat Stretch"$47.99
Stretching out its body, this cute cat adds a touch of Mexican folk art to any space. Jesus and Roxana Hernandez hand-carve the little from copal wood. It features intricate hand-painted designs in tones of green and blue. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.
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.

Angelite Pyramid Sculptures (Set of 2) from Peru, "Harmonic Pyramid Duo"$29.99
A universal symbol for power, pyramids have been treasured as liaisons between our world and the life beyond by many cultures across the globe. Cesar Gonzalez handcrafts this petite pair out of angelite, a gemstone native to his Peruvian homeland that is believed to enhance spiritual connections and healing vibes.
Cesar proudly continues with Peru's ancient tradition of stone carving from his workshop in the Ayacucho region. He takes advantage of the rich mineral resources found in the Peruvian Andes and frequently travels to the sierra in search of the colorful materials that inspire his designs.
Handmade Wood Green Frog Alebrije Sculpture from Mexico, "Green Tree Frog"$54.99
A realistic tree frog comes to life in hand-carved and painted copal wood. Pablo and Lucy Mendez carry on the traditional folk art they learned from their own parents. This charming creature brings a touch of whimsy to any setting.
Oaxaca's alebrije tradition derives from the art of Pedro Linares (1906-1992), a Mexico City papier mache artist. While in a coma during a serious illness, he found himself in a dream forest with fanciful creatures made with body parts from different animals. They cried, "Alebrije" Alebrije!" When he awakened, Linares crafted the figures in papier mache and his influence reached to Oaxaca, where they are carved from copal wood.
Because each sculpture is an individually created work of folk art, shapes are dictated by the wood branch and may vary slightly.
