Alebrijes are brightly colored, Mexican folk-art sculptures of fantastical (fantasy/mythical) creatures! Hummingbirds (colibri) have been significant in the Mexican culture since the Aztec empire. They are often thought of as messengers from heaven and pass on good intentions from loved ones in the after world.
This Oaxacan-style colibri wood carving is created and meticulously painted by hand.

These beautifully painted alebrijes are every bit as magical and delightful as real-life hummingbirds.. Lovely colors, delicate in design ….. perfect for hanging in a window.
Hummingbirds hold a special meaning to me, and I just love these so much! The colors bring me happiness
We liked our first Colibri so much we bought another one! They're both beautiful original creations! Thanks again.
Love, love the little yellow hummingbird…it is hanging in the foyer. Just wish the under tummy had some pattern painted as that’s what one see when you look up at it. But I still think it’s charming!
