Details

With a long, flowing mane, a whimsical golden lion roars with pride. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful alebrije. These fanciful sculptures are a traditional folk art in Oaxaca, once based on twenty totems but today representing all kinds of animals. They take their name from a Caló gypsy word for "something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic."

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly.

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
