Alebrijes – A Short History
The brightly painted wooden figures, ‘alebrijes’ are a mixture of two craft traditions. The Zapotecs of Oaxaca carved representations of animals from wood as totems and hunting decoys. Later, the focus of woodcarving was more focused on utilitarian items and masks for celebrations such as Carnival. The creation of fantastical creatures arose from dreams had by Pedro Linares during a long illness from which he immerged and began to create what he had seen, the ‘alebrijes.’
