NOVICA Green Hummingbird Green Hummingbird Alebrije Sculpture Crafted by Hand

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. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage. materials: Copal wood Hand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightly Signed by the artist Some assembly required 2.8 in. H x 3.7 in. W x 6.25 in. D
