Details

Hovering on whirring wings, a whimsical hummingbird seeks out the sweet nectar of flowers. 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.

"So Delicate and Beautiful!"

My husband just assembled the feathers into the body of our hummingbird and I hung it in our living room window over the plants on the sill. It is extraordinarily beautiful reflected in the window with its iridescent colors. Such an artistic delight!
