Giant Mexican Alebrije Dragon Folk Art Paper Mache 24" Linares? :
$150

This large folk art, fantasy creature, or alebrije, was created in Mexico in the style of the paper mache and cardboard creatures made byPedro Linares (1906-92) and his family.
It has so many of the characteristics of the paintwork on the Linares sculptures that I believe it may be one by Pedro Linares or his family..
It is not signed.
In the 1930s, during an illness, Pedro Linares dreamed of many magical fantasy creatures which he later brought to life in his folk art sculptures.
24" tall, 26" long, 20" wide.
In excellent vintage condition. No missing pieces, just some bends in the cardboard claws which have been stabilizedwith invisible glue.We've been selling online for 20 years. We take pride in the accuracy of our listings and in our happy customers.
