Wood

Ever since men and women have been known to be on Earth, they made and used objects from wood. In the beginning wooden objects were created for their utilitarian value-such as spears for self-defense or for bowls to serve food, or for the building of shelter. Now days objects made from wood serve a decorative purpose as well in our homes and offices.

Alebrijes (Delightful) Wood Carvings-Mexico

Alebrijes (Wood Carvings-Mexico)
Alebrijes

Wood carving, an ancestral Zapotec tradition, comes to its fullest expression through the Alebrijes. These are unreal and magic pieces born out of the imagination of the Oaxaqueño craftsmen.

Alebrijes represent an innovative and unreal spirit of the Oaxaqueño soul through the hand carving and painting of fantastically shaped figures using material like Cedar, Aguacatillo and Palo Torcido (Twisted Stick). These are made by Mixes tribes and craftsmen from San Martin Tilcajete. The perfect finish makes them unique and are considered as pieces of art.
