Mexican Alebrijes Critters : Aquatic Creatures and Bugs
Experience the magical and colourful art style of the Mexican Alebrijes with the cute little aquatic creatures and bugs.
Alebrijes are brightly coloured Mexican folk art creatures that act as spiritual guides for human beings in the after life. These creatures are usually fantastical in nature and are filled with intricate designs that captivate the eyes of the beholder.
Originally, the Alebrijes were carved from copal wood and made into structures by artisans who carved and painted each detail into them. In recent years, however, Alebrijes have expanded beyond wood and can now be found as an art style that is gaining mass appeal due to its vividness and detailed elements.
