This Alebrije is a surreal creature part snail, part feline and has one of the most delicate decoration we have ever seen!  It was all hand painted using an Agave cactus thorn for the finest strokes.  It was crafted from a single block of sacred copal wood in San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca.

Due to the quality of its painting, this alebrije is one of the finest in our collection.
The beautiful painting and the excellent wood carving make this Oaxacan alebrije unique and valuable.

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.
