Imagínese las icónicas esculturas de arte popular representativas de Oaxaca remodeladas en joyas... Estos aretes hacen precisamente eso, colgando el "alebrije" de tu oído. Aunque uno pensaría que colgar una escultura de su lóbulo sería pesado, pero en realidad, es ligero a pesar de su tamaño. Y su recubrimiento lacado le da una durabilidad de toda la vida.

El material de un alebrije está hecho de madera aromática tallada a mano, deshidratada para reforzar su durabilidad, y aplicada con varias capas de pinturas típicamente de diferentes colores vibrantes. Sus diseños reflejan la flora y fauna de las regiones donde residen los artesanos que las pintan, y con simbolismo que refleja su patrimonio cultural.
