Alebrije Wood Carvings

Alebrijes are imaginary and real creatures carved and painted in fantastic designs from the artisans own imagination. These colorful one-of-a-kind sculptures are hand-carved from copal wood which is grown in the surrounding fields. Alebrijes are traditionally made in Oaxaca in the towns of San Martin Tilcajete as well as Arrazola and have become known worldwide and highly sought after works of art.
