Alebrijes are colorful, dream-like fantasy figures that have become an intrinsic part of Mexican folk art. Yet they were created less than a century ago, a fact not many are aware of, not even Mexicans.
Alebrijes can be made of papier-maché or wood. They have wings, horns or tails, and most importantly: the body of one or more animals blended together. They can vary in size enormously, from small key-holders, to monumental parade sculptures. But most appealing is the vibrant colors and patterns they display.
Come by to our Alebrijes Culture Evenings and get to know the facts, the myths and symbols attributed to these unique art pieces, and make your own Papier-Maché Alebrije!
