MINI Alebrije Carvings

Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Hand-carved and then painted in cheerful colors, these alebrije carvings are the most sought-after folk art in Mexico. Each finely-crafted sculpture reflects its maker's talent and imagination. We buy our figurines directly from carvers living in villages of the Oaxaca valley. Most are signed by the artists. In most wood-carving families, the husband does the carving and whittling, children sand the figurines to a smooth finish, and it is often the wives who paint the finely-detailed patterns. The realm of Oaxacan woodcarving reflects the best of Mexico's wonderful, "made-by-hand" artistic traditions. For more details, download our promotional flyer at this link.

Miniature Oaxacan wood carvings are tiny, whimsical versions of some of the full-size figurines sold on this site. They will keep you company on your work desk, windowsill or night stand. During the Christmas season, the little creatures make fun, secret-Santa gifts or stocking-stuffers. . Painted in bright colors, they also make unusual board game players pieces; excellent for Monopoly! Collect a few!
