Alebrije's - Papier Mache

Alebrije's are animals from the dreams, during illness, of Pedro Linares. When he recovered, Linares began making the animals. This was in the 1930s in Oaxaca, Mexico. Since then, they have come to be famous and collected around the world. The animals are a mix of two animals made from Paper Mache with bright color patterns. 

This was the challenge given to students.
