Featured Reviews on Turtle Sculpture
Absolutely gorgeous! A real treasure!
Thank you Zeny and Reyna! Lucky me... I originally ordered this as a gift for a friend, but realized it would not arrive in time. He got a different Oaxacan Alebrije turtle and I get to keep this magical one made by Zeny (a turtle I have always admired).
Rich stone and lovely design
This is a large piece with waves of rich brown amidst lighter hues. It is very smooth to the touch. The turtle is pleasant.

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 Ricardo 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. He made paper replicas of these creatures to show everyone, and soon others began to craft other "monster-like" creatures in bright colors.
