Oaxacan Frog Alebrijes

Features

  • The frog is an ancient amulet. Revered from Mesopotamia to ancient Egypt and throughout all of classical antiquity, it continues to be a symbol of prosperity, fertility, and especially transition and transformation. Our Mexican frogs are hand carved from copal wood, then painted with fantasy patterns in startling colour combinations. A single glance is sure to bring a smile to your face – let alone a pathway to prosperity! A perfect gift. Hand made by traditional methods in the area around Oaxaca, where these figures are known as alebrijes. Unique, artisan made pieces. No two alike.
