condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Hand made
model name / number: Noah's Ark
size / dimensions: See listing
I purchased this large Noah’s Ark type rustic alebrije in the Sierra Sur in Oaxaca 25 years ago. I no longer have room for it and my new cat is fascinated with the removable animal heads. I’d like it to go to a new home that appreciates Folk Art.
The boat is 17” end to end and 7 ¼” high (boat only). The alebrije is 19 ½ “ high with the umbrella. and 6” wide without the animal heads. Width with 6 animal heads is 16”. It’s not signed but I bought it from the mountain family that made it; early work was rarely signed, even in the alebrije towns near the city of Oaxaca, much less on the mountain route to the Pacific Coast. I have never seen another like it.
You can see the alebrije in beautiful Pecos Canyon, but we sometimes come into Santa Fe. Please email to set up a viewing. Cash only please.
