Nori meets Carlos Danger

While in Oaxaca, Mexico, this summer, we came across the folk art known as ‘alebrije’ — basically, a wooden carved animal painted in fantastical colors.  The original alebrijes were all mythical creatures, but as time has passed and tourists have passed through, the local artisans have started making them in the shapes (more or less) of real animals.  So, when I visited an alebrije shop on my birthday, it only seemed appropriate to augment Nori’s shrine.  Her new friend is named, fittingly enough, ‘Carlos Danger’ because he’s Mexican and his ears tend to fall off.  Here’s documentation of their first encounter:
