Details

A playful hummingbird seeks out the sweet nectar of flowers 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 Calo 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.

"Beautiful and adjustable!"

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 all four colors and would love to see more: maybe bright yellow, light blue, lilac, gray, copper? And maybe beaks of different lengths and angles. 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. Thank you for creating such beautiful things!

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
