Multi Color Hummingbird Alebrije Sculpture Crafted by Hand

(11 reviews) Write a Review
SKU: 245039
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 painted orange, red, yellow, green, white and black. 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.

    It hovers tirelessly over the jasmine bush

    Beautifully executed and thoughtfully packaged for shipping, the little bird arrived in great shape and brings a smile to everyone who notices it hovering gracefully. (Some low test fishing line gives the illusion that she's flying.)

    I have seen a great many works of art, and your hummingbirds are some of the prettiest. They make me smile each time I see them, and draw constant compliments. I have the blue, green, purple and "colorful" ones and would love to see more: maybe bright yellow, light blue, lilac, gray, copper? And with beaks at different angles and of different lengths? I have moved the wings so some have big feathers in front, others in back or in the middle. They hang from my office ceiling, all at different heights. Please take care of the copal trees, and thank you for creating such beautiful things!
