Mantis Monday: Alebrijes!

Mantis Alebrije
A couple of weeks ago, one of my favorite art bloggers, Geninne, posted this picture of a cute little mantis figure. It's a Mexican artform called an alebrije, a brightly painted creature that could contain features from different animals, or sometimes just a fantastically decorated version of a single animal.

It made me want to search online for more mantis alebrijes, and I did. Here are two by Pablo Lopez.
