Everyone was on time and ready for us to learn how those famous "alebrijes" were made...from a raw piece of copal wood, the shape and size of which inspire the sculptor.Then comes the painting and what a miracle this is, and what detail they can accomplish with one hair brush. Trying ourselves at painting a small animal in two hours makes you quickly believe in the super talent of these painters trained for 6 months at 10 hours work day to achieve the best. After this experience our eyes are trained to the best and we can appreciate the differences and understand the high prices they commend.
