Striking and beautiful
The minute I saw this beauty on the Novica site I knew it was made for me. I absolutely love the bright colors and the tropical and friendly feathered theme. It is substantial in size so you can fully appreciate the artistry and looks perfect on the carved wooden stand. A true work of art - you wont be disappointed!
Amazing beauty! A King of birds for sure
Thank you Mauricio for making more of this stunning bird. I missed out on the first one/ones that were made. I bought this as a gift to myself (using some of my Novica Reward points). He is proudly displayed with some other birds from around the world. I can only imagine their joyful conversations.

Alebrijes are a fairly recent Mexican art form, attributed to Pedro Linares. Unconscious due to illness in 1936, he was presumed near death and yet his dreams were extremely vivid. He tells of a place where all was peaceful and quiet until all of a sudden there appeared a lion with an eagle's head, a rooster with bull's horns and a donkey with butterfly wings. They kept screeching "alebrije, alebrije!" and Pedro began running away. He encountered a man who told him it was not yet his time to be there are and he should continue running towards the exit. In this dream Pedro climbed out of a window and regained consciousness.
