Blue Cat Greeting

Mexican Alebrije Cat Sculpture

(3 reviews) Write a Review
SKU: 218229
Wearing bright red lipstick, a whimsical blue cat lifts her tail in greeting. 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 Calo gypsy word for 'something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic.'

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly.
  • Copal wood
  • 0.22 lbs
  • 6.8 inches H x 2 inches W x 4.5 inches D
  • Made in Mexico

    This little cat is just adorable! Right now she is keeping a friend of mine company (a temporary "adoption"). The details are amazing. I check frequently to see what is new from Zeny and Reyna.
