A-Z Challenge A is for Alebrijes of Arrazola

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.
