A-Z Challenge A is for Alebrijes of Arrazola

Bienvenidos!
A few years ago we traveled to
Oaxaca City in Oaxaca, Mexico.
While there we took a side trip to the
small town of Arrazola .
Amazing art is created here.
 
 
 
Jaguar carved by Manuel Jimenez

 
 
Polar Bear and Salmon
carved by Orlando Mandarin
 
You can browse here HERE
to see even more amazing creations.
The art of Mexico is partly why we
we love to travel to Mexico.
You will see other reasons why
during this years
A to Z Challenge.

Not my cup of tea. I'm not an authority on art either. I just like what I like.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. Scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥
