Hand-carved and hand-painted, these carvings are the most sought-after folk art in Mexico. With brilliant colors and fine craftsmanship, each sculpture reflects its maker's talent, imagination and creativity. We buy the figurines here directly from the renowned carvers living in villages of the Oaxaca valley. Collectors prize their cheerful features and one-of-a-kind originality. The realm ofOaxacan woodcarving reflects the best of Mexico's wonderful, "made-by-hand" artistic traditions.

This category of collectible Oaxacan wood carvings features water dwelling animals such as frogs, fish and seals. Each carving is handmade, signed by the artist, and one-of-a-kind. No two Oaxacan alebrijes are exactly alike.
