During a trip to Mexico Eleonora found the “alebrijes” those brightly colored Oaxacan-Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures. She visited the Museum of Popular Art in Mexico City and the first thing she saw was a giant Tree of Life in the garden and that's how she got the inspiration for this wonderful illustration.
Tree by Eleonora Arroyo 9 x 12 inches (23 x 30,5 cm.) Giclée print of an original in collage on paper. Each print in this series of 25, comes with a certificate of authenticity, numbered and signed by the artist with the date of printing. While all prints come unframed, they all fit standard frame sizes and standard pre-cut mat sizes (read: you won’t ever need to pay for pricey custom framing).
