 ABOUT THIS PAPER MACHE ALEBRIJE

This alebrije was crafted with the original paper mache technique. Its standing position in two legs is fierce and playful. It is all hand painted in a multi color palette with orange dotted black Legs & Arms. the wings are beautifully painted in orange. The alebrije is signed at the bottom by los Negrete Workshop.

Coco, the movie made has recently put alebrijes on the hotspot, but Alebrijes are one of the most important Mexican traditions since the first third of the XXth century, when Mr. Pedro Linares invented or created them using the paper mache technique, which is the very same used to make this outstanding museum quality collectors item. 

Alebrijes meaning has an oneiric and surreal origin, since the word is not in the dictionary but was heard by Pedro Linares during an illness in which he saw these fantastic figures called Alebrijes by the first time.
