“The Alebrije was created by Pedro Linares Lopez in the 1930’s”.
“The Alebrijes are imaginary creatures that have elements from different animals such as dragon bodies, bat wings, wolf teeth and dog eyes. Colorfully painted, they were originally made with papier mache but nowadays they are also wood carved”.
