La Historia de Alebrijes
El arte de Oaxaca
Su proyecto de Arte
The sound was terrible,
and Linares was not able to stay there for a long time;
he got a terrible headache and he ran along a stone road where a man was walking.
Linares asked the man for help as he wanted to escape.
The man told him that he should not be there yet, and the man said that Linares had to walk by that road and a few meters ahead there was an exit.
Linares ran and ran until he was in front of narrow window,
and he passed through that window and then woke up.
The Dream...
While he was in bed, unconscious, Linares dreamt of a strange place resembling a forest.
There were trees, animals, clouds, sky, rocks, etc.; he felt no pain and he was very happy walking down there.
Suddenly, rocks, clouds and animals turned into something strange, some kind of animals, but, unknown animals.
He saw a donkey with butterfly wings,
a rooster with bull horns,
a lion with an eagle head,
and all of them were shouting just one word,
the word was "Alebrijes",
every animal was shouting louder and louder:
"Alebrijes, Alebrijes, Alebrijes!".
