Alebrijes of Oaxaca, Mexico  
Legend tells us that the first alebrijes were seen in a dream by Pedro Linares. Linares fell sick and during his convalescence he dreamt of a jungle filled with fantastical animals in every hue and color and with mixed up parts. Butterfly wings might be on a giraffe. Unicorns cavort with eagle headed lions and frogs have horns.


Preparing for Winter with laughter & smiles.
