This charming little coyote alebrije howling at the moon is hand crafted out of copal wood by artisan Teresita Gonzalez of Mexico. A bright array of colors and myriad of floral and geometric motifs are among the many hand painted details this delightful alebrije has to offer. Small parts are separated for shipping to protect from breakage.

The artisan says about what her art means to her: 'The doctor diagnosed me with cancerous sarcoma, but I'd look at my son and I knew my work in life wasn't finished. I began painting as a form of therapy, and I've learned to believe in life and to have dreams.'
