Alebrije Sculptures Come to Life

On Dia De Los Muertos, Alebrije sculptures come to life through the imaginations of ExYo Youth. These fantastical creatures are inspired by Mexican artist Pedro Linares, who first created the Alebrije’s in the 20th century. Linares had fallen ill and in his dreams saw the wild colorful creatures and heard the word Alebrije. When he woke, he began to create these dream inspired strange animals out of papier-mâché and cardboard.
