He or she is about 7 1/2 tall from head to foot. He is about 9 1/2 long from nose to tail. Estate find from an Artist who had a very varied collection of items, he sometimes used in his paintings. I'm afraid in later life he didn't look after his thing very well and the animal looks like it may have gotten wet or at least been picked up by wet hands Made of wood, nails, and dye. Alebrijes are brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures depicting fantastical creatures or familiar animals.
