Maruja the alebrije by creturfetur Maruja the alebrije by creturfetur
A third alebrije, bringing me up to an average of one alebrije per year! Hopefully that will change for the better, soon. I'm already working on a new, smaller one.

Alebrijes are folk art sculptures from central Mexico, usually made of paper maché (Mexico City) or wood (Oaxaca), depicting dream monsters. I make mine out of wool.

Her name is Maruja :)

And she's for sale at the store! [link]

D:! está bien hermosa! (imagino que es niña por esos ojos tan bonitos), Siempre me ha interesado, pero ahora que descubrí que me gusta hacer esculturas (aun que el material es bastante distinto a la lana que tu utilizas), ¿cómo le haces para que se vea tan compactito y definido? y como tiñes la lana? o la compras ya coloreada? utilizas una estructura de alambre o metal u otro material? o es 100% lana? (lol srry bout' awkward questions)
