Details

A playful hummingbird soars skyward in an alebrije sculpture designed to hang from the ceiling. 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."

Includes a thread for hanging.

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

"Thank you for this treasure"

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. When I bought this, it was the last one. I didn't write a review then....I did see that more were available. I had this for a while - saving to give my husband as a gift. The bird hangs from the ceiling and catches the light so beautifully. I have been an admirer of Zeny's work since he first began. I had a video of his work that I showed my art students. Zeny and Reyna are gifted artists. I have given many of Zeny's and Reyna's creations as gifts to friends and family.

"A one of a kind gift for a cherished friend."

Unique piece of artwork that was perfect for a dear friend who collects hummingbirds and needed a special addition to them. I am amazed at how wonderfully made this is made and the true appearance of being a bird in flight.
