A whimsical blue kitten romps and plays. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful alebrije cat. 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 an individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.
