Very creative owl raccoon fusion alebrije wood carving from the Ramirez family workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Ramirez family is known worldwide for their excellent wood carvings which are decorated with traditional Zapotec patterns. This piece was expertly carved out of a single piece of copal wood with the head of a raccoon and the body of an owl. Zapotec art often fuses parts of multiple animals into one fantastical creation which is called a nahual.
