The perfect gift that delivered a smile.
Arrived in excellent condition. Colors and appearance exactly as pictured. My friend who was the recipient was excited to receive and cherishes the gift as a reminder of our last trip to Peru.
Cute and colofrul
I have been collecting Jon Anderson pieces for three years now and when I saw this penguin - had to get it. The colors are great and the baby penguin adds to the smile I get when I look at it. I love his pieces because they depict animals I have seen on my travels and they are so unique with color.
This is even more beautiful than the photo, very skillfully carved with a rich color. Thank you for making these lovely items.

Wood Alebrije Swordfish Figurine from Mexico, "Swordfish Mystery"$39.99
Carved of copal wood, this delightful figurine from Mexico depicts a swordfish. Mexican duo Zeny and Reyna design this "mystery of nature" in the traditional style of handicrafts. The swordfish features a vibrant, hand-painted finish.
The alebrije tradition started with Mexico City papier mache artisan Pedro Linares (1906-1992). When he was 30, he fell into a coma due to serious illness. While he was unconscious, he dreamed he was caught between the land of the living and the dead; the place looked like a forest and was populated with creatures with body parts belonging to different animals. The beings repeatedly uttered the word alebrije. Upon recovering, Linares recreated these figures in bright colors using papier mache techniques and called them alebrijes. His work became famous and was one of the main influences of artisans in the state of Oaxaca who began crafting alebrijes of their own using traditional wood carving methods.
