I may look a bit like Sonic the Hedgehog but I am even mightier than even a sledge dog. I have wings, I have shows, and legs that go on for miles and wherever I go I bring on the smiles. My eyelashes are big, just like my personality. I was handcrafted with love, don’t underestimate that originality. I am big like my beak and I have intricate patterns. Let me introduce myself, my name is Owlybird, please pardon my manners.
Alebrijes are fantastical creatures of Mexican folk art that first originated in 1930s in Mexico City by the artisan Pedro Linares. Since then, alebrijes have been introduced by Mexican artists and artisans all over the world and the use of different materials has been employed creating a variety of styles and aesthetics.
The alebrije measures 9″W x 14″L x 13″H. This tall and fast alebrije was carefully handcrafted and painted with bright colors and patterns to bring it to life and give it a personality. It can be placed on any flat surface to keep a watchful eye over the room and your things, all the while becoming the focal point for the brave ones who dare look.
