Gourd Owl Ornament
Handmade in Peru
Ornament owl carved gourd asst sizes brown/rust/black/natural
Thoughtful round owl ornament is made from an etched gourd. Artisans working with Manos Amigas in Lima, Peru, carve the design, after which they accent it with red-hot pieces of burned wood. The gourd is then painted with a natural paint made from ground chalk mixed with water. Later most of the finish is washed off; the residue gives beauty to the carved parts of the design. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.
