This figure set was carved and painted by hand in San Martín Tilcajete, one of the three towns in Oaxaca, Mexico, known for its hand-carved wooden figures called “alebrijes”. The carving and painting of these reproductions was led by artisan José Alberto Fuentes.

"Before moving to México City, I lived in New York for about three years. In the last apartment that I lived over there, my bedroom's window was facing an alley and one of my favorite things to do was looking out and seeing the alley cats do their thing. There was an abandoned car and the recurring cardboard boxes and trash and all. One time I saw like 9 or 10, a whole gang, it was insane, I loved it.
It's actually one of the things I miss the most: sitting on my bed with a cup of coffee, looking out the window and enjoying the view."
