When I was born my present was an “alebrije”. Today after almost 27 years I had the chance to meet the artist that made it and a few more from the town of Arrazola, Oaxaca. It was a wonderful experience to get to know these craftsmen and human beings, they welcomed us as if we had known each other for years, we exchange stories, they gave us fruit from their trees and shared their joy. Thanks to Miguel Santiago Soriano, Antonio Mandarin, Catarino Carrillo, Armando Jimenez, their wives and families and of course our guide, the boy Angel.
We should support and celebrate these ARTISTS more!!! This just make me wonder how many more great lost artists + human beings exist that we don’t know... yet #Oaxaca#Arrazola#Mexico#Alebrijes
