Oaxacan Alebrijes Blue Porcupine Wood Carving - Mexican Folk Art
Our wonderful and whimsical Oaxacan alebrijes wood carvings are enchanting creatures. These imaginative and brilliantly colored figures are hand carved of Copal wood from the hills surrounding the Oaxacan valley, using machetes and pocket knives. An authentic Mexican folk art, myth and magic are a major source of inspiration behind each carving. No two pieces are identical, as each carving is a work of art and is signed by the artisan.
