Bring home this colorful alebrije rendition of a xolo - short for xoloesquintle - Mexico's iconic hairless dog. Jesus and Roxana Hernandez hand-carve it from copal wood and decorate its body with joyful geometric patterns in a palette of turquoise blue, lime green, teal blue, grey, and bluish-purple. The tail is removable for shipping.
The artisan couple comes from a Zapotec community in Oaxaca known for its alebrijes. Jesus takes care of the carving part while Roxana works her magic creating the colorful patterns that decorate their designs.
