These handmade bobbing turtles are one of our best selling alebrijes! Each alebrije and wooden turtle was carved by hand and hand painted, making every single wooden turtle absolutely unique. Also, the head of each wooden turtle/alebrije is attached with a small thread inside its body, this way the head can bobble freely every time you touch its head or move it around. You can place these little guys pretty much anywhere: on a bookshelf, near your office desk, on the dashboard of your car (as you drive you can see them bobbing their head!), or gift them to that turtle lover!

**Note that the color, size and design will vary. Once you place your order, the color of each turtle will be chosen randomly. If you'd like to pick a particular color from our images above, please make that request in the Notes section at checkout ;)**

Now, you may ask: "What IS an Alebrije?" Alebrijes are known to be artistic representation of imaginative creatures, mainly animals in Mexico. All pieces go through an elaborate process to become what you see here in this picture!

How is an alebrije made?
1. Cut wood from special type of tree, the Copalillo; typically grown in Oaxaca.
2. Artisans either start the carving process right away, or they leave wood to dry it sun for 2-3 days.
3. Imaginative figure is carved; after it is placed in the sun to dry, depending on the size of figure.
4. After it it dry, the artisans sands the figure down. It is usually sanded with gasoline or a liquid to protect wood from any type of insects.
5. Once it is smooth, the artisan proceeds to cover it with a coat of color paint (base paint), then small details proceed!

Normally items ship within 1-3 business days. During the holiday season, we try for items to ship within 1-2 business days.
The majority of the items are ceramic and are very fragile, therefore I take the extra step to absolutely handle all items with care so that they arrive safely to you! All items are wrapped in beautiful tissue paper and bubble wrap. Afterwards, I add peanuts and air packaging bags to prevent the item from shifting and moving around in the box while in transit.

If you'd like for me to write a special note to your recipient, feel free to message me and I'll write it for you and include it in your package!
Absolutely not! Each and every item is unique and completely handmade. You're guaranteed a one-of-a-kind piece.
