The wood is heavy and well-crafted. Drawers are wide and deep enough to store much of my jewelry and the side panels for pendants and necklaces are great.

Wood Alebrije Fox Figurine in Black from Mexico, "Black Fox"$49.99
Carved of copal wood, a watchful fox is depicted in this charming figurine. Mexican duo Zeny and Reyna design this figurine, which is hand-painted with metallic motifs over its stark black body.
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.
