Miniature handmade alebrje snail made out of wood and handpainted by hand, this folk artsy snail will create "Awwwss!" when you show it off! Smaller than the size of a quarter and the cool thing is that it bobbles its head when you move its head and wind blows passed it!

Alebrijes are known to be artistic representation of imaginative creatures, mainly animals. All pieces go through an elaborative process to become what you see here in this picture!

 

Steps in elaborating an Alebrije:

  • 1. Cut wood from special type of tree, the Copalillo; typically grown in Oaxaca.
  • 2. Artisans either start the carving process right away, or they leave wood to dry it sun for 2-3 days.
  • 3. Imaginative figure is carved; after it is placed in the sun to dry, depending on the size of figure.
  • 4. After it it dry, the artisans sands the figure down. It is usually sanded with gasoline or a liquid to protect wood from any type of insects.
  • 5. Once it is smooth, the artisan proceeds to cover it with a coat of color paint (base paint), then small details proceed!
