Details

A whimsical blue kitten romps and plays. Zeny and Reyna transform found pieces of copal wood into a delightful alebrije cat. These fanciful sculptures are a traditional folk art in Oaxaca, once based on twenty totems but today representing all kinds of animals. They take their name from a Calo gypsy word for "something difficult, tangled, confusing or fantastic."

Because each alebrije is individually created work of folk art, shapes will vary slightly.

"Joyful treasure!"

This cat is masterfully carved and painted. Mine is even better than pictured and has a mischeivious sweet personality. Prayers that Zeny and Reny and la familia are safe after the quakes and will continue to share their alejibre with the world.

"Very artistic and vibrant colors"

I love oaxacan and have a decent size collection. This is my second cat and the colors are vibrant and lively. The carving is excellent and it looks wonderful next to Coyote.

"Fun, whimsicle kitty! Excellent work."

Bought this sweet little kitty for my friend. It reminded me of a stray cat that adopted her. Miss Dilly the cat is now coming into her house and has become quite affectionate -- Maybe because of this little Spirit Kitty (smile)? I love the work of Zeny and Reyna. I have several of their pieces and have purchased several as gifts for friends and family.

Thank you Zeny and Reyna. I bought the ""Playful Blue Kitten"" as a gift for a friend of mine. She loves it! The details are amazing the kitten's expression and pose just too precious. I have several Zeny and Reyna pieces myself, but always like to see what new items are offered. They make great gifts!
