Alebrije Cat Mobile

Alebrije Cat Mobile


This mobile has wonderfully balanced aerodynamics for graceful movement. To fly, the cat only needs a gentle pull and release of the bottom string.


Medium-density fiberboard


Decorated with dyed tagua nuts

19 inches in wingspan


Hand-crafted in small batches by a woman-owned business that employs single moms and internally displaced Afro-Colombians. According to the fair-trade gallery that distributes the mobiles, painting the wings and bodies require great skill and years of experience. Only two artisans have mastered the ability to paint wings. The small company is owned by Isabel, out of Colombia.
