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.

    We live in an area where we have Hummingbirds all year round. This little guy is hanging out in an unexpected place and often greeted with surprise followed by admiration. He's beautiful.

    Very light and airy, easy to put together. Pretty coloring.
