ABOUT THESE OAXACAN, ALEBRIJE STYLE EARRINGS

These heart shaped Mexican earrings are a fine sample of the creativity and talent of Oaxacan Artists. They were created in San Martín Tilcajete, Oaxaca. Inspired by traditional wood carvings also known as Alebrijes. The earrings are entirely decorated by hand with ancient indigenous Zapotec symbols and beautiful flowery motif.  They have an exquisite mustard over orange palette with black & beige strokes. 
The hooks are gold plated and the hearts are made of copal wood, the same wood used to make Oaxaca's famous wood carvings known as Tonas, Nahuales and Alebrijes.  

Coco, the movie; did a thorough research and a beautiful representation of the  Mexican tradition of Alebrijes. in the movie, Alebrijes are part of a tale in which Miguel crosses to the world of the dead with the help of a Dante, a Xoloiscuintli dog.
