A participant, wearing an alebrije-like mask, poses for a picture during the 6th Monumental Alebrijes Parade in Mexico City October 20, 2012. The Museo de Arte Popular (Museum of Popular Art) has been organising the parade since 2007 to promote the works of Mexican artists and artisans, local media reported. An alebrije is a fantasy creature, which is usually a combination of the various parts of real-life and mythical animals, such as a lion with dragon tails and multi-headed animals.
