Colourful little statues
Foxes in my heart
A beautiful fox with a fantastically colored coat in Oaxacan Alejibres - "fantastical animal" - style. Legend has it that, while very ill, Alejibres creator Pedro Linares Lopez had a feverish dream where he saw many mythical creatures. When he recovered he began making papier mache piñatas featuring them. Oaxacan Alebrijes were pioneered by Manuel Jimenez, who made intricately carved and painted pieces.
